Carlito B. Arrogante, MD

Carlito B Arrogante, age 86, passed away on Saturday, March 5th, 2022 in Richland, WA.  


Dr. Arrogante was born in Manila, Philippines on January 14, 1936 to the late Primitivo and Consolacion Arrogante.  He had 5 siblings; Ruben, Roberto, Estrellita, Corazon and Lorna.  He graduated from Far Eastern University, School of Medicine in 1962.  He immigrated to the United States from the Philippines in 1962 and went on to complete 2 years of medical internship in St. Claire’s Medical Hospital and 4 years of medical residency for Obstetrics and Gynecology at Bronx Lebanon Hospital in New York City.   In 1968, he married his wife Rachel in Manhattan, New York City.  They lived together in Manhattan for 10 years before relocating to Lake Worth, Florida in 1976.  In 2019, he relocated to Richland, WA to retire with his wife and to be close to his grandchildren.


Dr. Arrogante practiced Obstetrics and Gynecology in Palm Beach County until he retired in 2019.  He worked at John F. Kennedy Hospital, St. Mary’s Hospital and Good Samaritan Hospital in Palm Beach County and Lakeside Medical Center in Belle Glade, Florida.  He also maintained a successful private practice in West Palm Beach for close to 30 years.  He was well regarded and beloved by his patients and fellow doctors and nurses.  He proudly delivered approximately 3500+ babies in Palm Beach County.  Dr. Arrogante was known not only for his medical expertise, but also for his lighthearted, humorous bedside manner and endless generosity for his patients.  He never turned away a patient, even if they could not afford his medical services.   Dr. Arrogante’s patients will also remember him for telling jokes and wearing humorous novelty tee shirts underneath his doctor’s coat.  


Dr. Arrogante was an avid outdoorsman.  He enjoyed many activities from skiing to cycling, tennis to golf.  But his heart ultimately belonged to the ocean where he loved to fish and boat.  His greatest joy and daily meditation was fishing from his backyard pier (which he built himself) or from any one of his numerous fishing spots in and around Palm Beach County.  As much as he loved fishing with his family and friends, he equally enjoyed fishing alone late at night until the early morning.  Dr. Arrogante traveled extensively with his wife, Rachel within the United States and abroad.  His travels included several countries in Europe and Asia.  He also enjoyed riding his motorcycle and taking road trips with his family.  


Dr. Arrogante is survived by his wife, Rachel and their three children, Carl, Chad and Kim and their respective spouses Agi, Lissette and Brandon.  He has three grandchildren, Mia, Liana and Aza whom he loved and adored and who they all call “Papa”.  Dr. Arrogante is also survived by his five siblings, a host of nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews.  All whom he loved dearly and showered with laughter and affection.


Funeral Mass will be held at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Kennewick, WA at 11:00 am on March 16, 2022.  Graveside Inurnment will take place at 12:00 pm followed by Celebration of Life at 1:00 pm.

  • Dr Arrogante will be missed by many. I worked for many years with him in OB at Glades General and Lakeside. He was a great and caring doctor, loved to teach and was a jokester. Lots of laughs when he was around. We have many, many great Dr. A stories. I pray to God his family to be comforted and receive strength from above to face this loss. God Bless his family.
