Uncle Art was a hard worker. He loved to talk, and always made people feel welcome. He loved American cars, the Cubs, and corny jokes. He was a man proud of his Faith. Uncle Art sang a love song to my Aunt Ella, after my Dad’s funeral. He gave me fruit on my last visit. Uncle Art was one tough cookie! Rest In Peace, Uncle Art!

Ella, Cheryl , Richard, and the Lange family.
Arthur was a very strong and prominent man within our community.

Arthur blessed us all with his great sense of humor and an on going desire to keep us all connected to each other. A characteristic that will surely be missed.

No matter what holiday came or family event that was forthcoming, Arthur was sure to let the world know that we should celebrate any life event, and that is a very good thing.

God bless the Lange family and may you all continue to love life the way Arthur showed us.

Fond memories of your dad how he supported our singing in the guitar group together for many years.
He always was smiling when he greeted me at the door.
He will be missed but will always remain in our hearts!
Watch over all of us, Mr Lange!
God Bless You!
