Adrian “Tiki” Arangure, 35, of Montague, passed away Wednesday, April 7, 2021. He was born April 8, 1985, in Shelby, the son of Mario and Frances (Galvan) Arangure.
Tiki was a Taquero at Taqueria Diaz for the last 13 years, where the business grew from a local food truck into an established restaurant in Whitehall. He enjoyed cooking and eating; saying to never trust a skinny chef. Tiki also enjoyed golfing and spending time with his family and friends.
