I know we are all just a loan and that we must leave here one day-But I didn't think you would leave so suddenly. I still remember when I was a kid and you would race me down the street or chase me thru the yard in Dixie. I will treasure those happy memories of the good times we had. You were my favorite uncle because you were there for me and my siblings and I love you for that. Thanks
Rest in Peace.

It's people like Arthur and Betty that have made KATV a great place to work. What a great couple. Arthur was always so happy. Regardless of what kind of day I was having, seeing Arthur would brighten my day. A sweet man who will be missed. So sorry for Betty. A great example for any man on how to
treat his wife. Always admired how Arthur treated Betty.

Thoughts and prayers are with you and
your family,

Dear Uncle Duck, I am so sorry for your untimely death and I will miss you dearly. You were always a great and fun uncle and I’m proud to say that you were my most blessed and cherished uncle and I have always looked up to you. My memories of you are all fond memories. I know wrestling was your thing and I will never forget the summers I spent with you laughing and joking about how fake wrestling was. Due to my military service obligations, I will not be able to attend your farewell to the Golden Gate, but know I am there in spirit. I love you and thank you so much for taking care of my Aunt Betty and being that awesome uncle you were. I love you and my tears are of joy. You are dear to my heart and I will always love you Uncle Duck. Farewell and fly high! Love always and forever, your niece Sheila.
