Arthur loved his job, which he began at the age of 17, driving a truck for 7 Up. He never missed a day of work, even when his children were born. He loved his family with everything he had and was a great provider. His wife, children and grandchildren were his world.
He loved music and especially loved going to concerts; however, his all-time favorite band was the Beatles! His favorite sports team was the Dallas Cowboys. Arthur loved traveling and going on vacation with his family. He loved classic movies – classic everything. He had an undying love for his mother, Minnie. He wanted happiness and peace for everybody.
He will be dearly missed by everyone whose lives he touched.
