When I was young, Arthur used to take me and Walter around in his delivery truck for Freddy Malcolm's. He'd give us chocolate bars and chips every time and I thought he was the nicest man I ever met. Whenever I saw him over the next 30 years, he was still that. He always greeted me with a happy and boisterous "How's she goin' buddy?!", he'd give me tips on who to bet on at the races, and ask how things were in Halifax. He was always positive, generous and friendly, and influenced me in more ways than he probably knew. You were a great man, Arthur. Thanks for the memories and may you Rest in Peace
