Arthur May, Jr., 94, of Tampa, passed away on November 18, 2020. Arthur, also known as Al, was born in Pensacola, Florida, but had resided in Tampa since 1968. Al enlisted in the Army in 1945 six days before his 18th birthday, and then transferred to the Army AirCorp, and finally the Air Force in 1947. He retired in May 1967, with 22 years of distinguished service, a World War II and Korean War veteran, and worked on the top secret Atomic Bomb project. He was very proud of his service to his country and told many stories of his time served. Al met and married Betty in Sacramento, California while stationed there in 1956. They soon moved to Japan, and spent the next eleven years living and traveling all over the world. After retiring, Al became a Master Barber, and then in 1972, became co-owner of Dipper Dan / Britton Plaza Ice Cream Parlor. He loved the Lord, his family, children and animals, was fun-loving and loved to laugh, always smiling, was creative, ambitious and hard-working and never met a stranger. Al had a heart of gold, and always provided a food, clothing or money to anyone in need. He made the world a better place, and will be missed by all who knew him. Al was preceded in death by his wife, Betty, and is survived by his son, Micheal May; his daughter, Tammy Fuori, and her fiancé, David Hickman; his grandchildren, Jessica Clark and Zacharia Fuori, and great-granddaughter, Lydia Fuori.

I hope all the happy memories will help you during this time of sadness.
Our parents teach us many things in life. In the end they teach us the hardest lesson we will learn from them.... how to walk alone with out them.
