Dear Eastsider: Did you know Arthur Cisneros?

Cisneros was the 61-year-old man who hung out in Echo Park near the A-1 grocery store on Sunset Boulevard or across the street in the Royale Liquor mini mall. His large suit case on wheels was always nearby. “He was often drinking, even quite early in the morning, enjoying time with friends who stopped to chat,” said Jennifer of Echo Park. “He was always very sweet and caring with my two dogs, which is how I became friendly with him.”

But, a few weeks ago, she noticed that Cisneros had not moved for several days. Jennifer took Cisernos to the emergency room. Last night, when Jennifer went to visit Cisneros at St. Vincent’s Medical Center, she was told he had died a few hours earlier. Now, Jennifer is looking to help find the man’s family:

“What I know about him, from filling out hospital forms on the night of 7/13, is that his name is Arthur Cisneros, that he is (according to his own description) Mexican American, and that he was born in Los Angeles in August, 1948.If anyone has any information about the family of Arthur Cisneros, or their whereabouts, or information that could lead to figuring this out, they could email me at jm90026@gmail.com” or call the Los Angeles County Coroner at (323) 343-0711.
