Arthur was a devoted father, life partner, and friend. He worked hard as a mechanic for over 40 years. His greatest joy was spending time with his family and friends. Arthur and Janet would visit North Carolina frequently to visit their family cabin in the mountains. He also enjoyed fishing and being on the water. Coaching both sons in soccer and baseball and being a "stage dad" at dance recitals will always be a great memory. He was a devout parishioner of Mary Queen of Peace Catholic Church. Arthur will be fiercely missed by many.
