My latest Thanksgiving was at Arthur & his lovely family’s home... since I had no where to go, they welcomed me with open arms. He was so witty, made us all laugh and felt like I was family already. Arthur will be missed, and wish I hugged him a little bit longer.. grateful for his family, for without them, there’d be many more people lost. Thank you for giving me a memory I’ll never take for granted. Love to the entire family 💜🙏🏼

My deepest condolences to family and friends on your loss. I knew Arthur from my time spent in Bronx/Westchester Major Services from 1997 through 2007. The jobs I would meet him on involved high-voltage facilities on customer property, either for protective shut-downs, repairs, or identifying new facilities. Arthur's job knowledge was extensive and I always learned something new on every job we worked. He enjoyed sharing his job knowledge with others and only required you to listen to one or two of his stories as upfront payment. His prices were reasonable.

Arthur was a unique individual whom I am glad to have known. May God bless his family and friends in this difficult time.
