Raul de Arriz was born in Madrid Spain on October 6, 1959 to Pilar Redondo and Luis (Lucho) de Arriz.
He had an adventurous and mischievous youth that spanned over Madrid, Peru, Argentina, Ireland and the United States. While at Colegio de Nuestra boarding school in Madrid, more than one nun attempted to rein in his unruly and unique behavior. Raul had an incredible bond with his grandparents, Joaquin and Concha Redondo of Madrid Spain. His mother Pilar Redondo (predeceased) was a beautiful heart, unique and happy soul. Raul was so much like his mom.
He studied liberal arts at Georgetown University. Biology, Neuro-Science, Architecture and Psychology at Montgomery College and University of Maryland. Education prior to college also included Colegio de Nuestra boarding school, Organizacion Juvenil Espanola, San Augustin Lima Peru and University Argentina.
His businesses included MacCorner, Absolute Mac, MCIS Corporation, Raras Music, RAR Enterprises and DeArriz Companies. Incredible businessman and work ethic.
How do you best describe Raul? To know him is to know his music. To know him is to know his love of family and friends.
Raul was a gifted and self taught songwriter and musician. His passion and love for music was unprecedented to all that knew him. He couldn’t pass a piano without stopping to play. Be it the Palace de las Cortes hotel in Madrid, Congressional CC, homes of friends or the Johns Hopkins Weinberg lobby. He entertained all with his amazing talent.
Raul had a heart big enough to include all, as we know from his enormous bear hugs and killer smile. So passionate of life, he ended every call or text with – “Big Kiss!” Nothing was more important than his family and close friends. So proud of his children, best described as:
Maximilian – The ultimate father, husband, family and businessman. Well aware of how to balance and prioritize. So much like his father physically, in business, in family and emotions. Loving husband to Misty and father to the twins, Oliver and Felix.
Aristedes – The brilliant engineering student with talents in theater, music, dance, the arts. A critical thinker, world traveler. Again like his father, so authentic in all aspects of his life.
Heather – A daughter not biologically, but definitely his. Two peas in a pod, kindred spirits, artists, animal lovers and tech buddies. His heart was big enough to include her as she so willingly accepted, so blessed.
My Raul. You made my life an adventure, a journey so full of unconditional love and total understanding. You’ll always be my kokopelli, my bohemian life partner, my love.
Surrounded this week by his loving family, Michele Bruno (life partner), son Maximilian de Arriz with Misty, Oliver and Felix, son Aristedes de Arriz with partner Kerri and loving daughter Heather Garrigus. As well as his very close friends, he parted. In the words of his mother Pilar- Sleep amongst the angels my love, Te Quiero Mucho. Un beso grande!

Over many years I enjoyed working with Raul through Small Dog Electronics.
I regret that I never got to know, or meet, him personally.
As anyone who interacted with him would agree, he was always an upbeat and friendly guy!
My sincere condolences to his family & friends.

Raul was sunshine on a cloudy day. The world is a sadder place, a bit darker by your absence. I am so honored and grateful to have known you. Watch over us, we still all need your light. I will miss you. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

Raul you were truly unique and one of a kind;
Your kindred spirit for life, family and friends will forever shine;
You were born with so much talent you found deep within;
We are all so blessed to hear your songs and stories every now and then;
You found out you were sick over ten years ago;
That didn't stop you from living life to the fullest that we all know;
Your nickname was labeled Miracle Man everywhere you went;
You kept smiling making everyone else feel better no matter how your time was spent;
The angels came to your bed and said you did your best;
It was now time to say goodbye and they put your soul to a peaceful rest;
Watch over all your loved ones Michele will need you near;
God Bless you Raul we love and miss you and will forever hold you dear.

Much Love, Connie, Paul, Jess, Lauren and Justin

I met Raul a few years ago via Small Dog Electronics. I never met Raul in person, as our interactions were always verbal or via email. Raul was not only a professional businessman, but also a wonderful person! I remember when he told me he was diagnosed with cancer and undergoing treatment. His attitude remained positive and I could always feel his smile on the other end of the communication line. Even when he felt bad, he continued his amazing work ethic, and remained upbeat. His concern was always for others; never faltering. My heart breaks receiving the news of Raul's transition to his Heavenly life, and I send my deepest condolences and love to his family, friends and co-workers. Rest in Paradise, Raul! Heaven has gained another Angel! Until we meet again...
