    Tina and I are so sorry to hear of Arthur’s passing. We enjoyed his company at events and I knew his parents when I shopped at their store downtown. He was a fine EMT at Pawt. FD and dedicated to helping people in need at Red Cross. We will miss him.

    Arthur was an amazing person and I was honored to call him my uncle. I will never forget the fun we had together or the father / daughter dance he took me too when my Dad had to work. I remember his insane train set and his DJ equipment and his love of his family. I’m blessed to have known him.

    Irene and Amy Beth – we love you both very much and our thoughts and prayers go out to you. I am sorry I will not be there in person but know I am there in spirit always.
