Many prayers, thoughts & hugs to the Arbuckle family & extended family. John was a very special person to me, always a big smile & a kind word. He pulled me from a very dark & rough time several years ago with that smile & those words. Thank you Brother. I love you very much & you will be missed dearly.

I have fond memories of my cousin "Little John" I knew when I was a kid during the short times I lived in and visited Wichita falls. I hardly knew the adult John Arbuckle, but what I did know of him was that he was a great guy with a big heart. My thoughts and prayers for all my southern relatives and others who knew John.

Our thoughts, and prayers go out to the family and the MANY friends. Although i really didnt know John that well he was very well respected and talked very highly of. He was the type that would drop anything to help anyone at any given time no matter the situation. He was a very good friend to my brother and he will forever be missed.

Be comforted in the fact that John is not gone -he just got to Heaven a little before the rest of us and is enjoying the sights until all his loved ones are together again. I'll miss seeing him out in town and I'll always be touched over his words of encoragement when my son was overseas.
Wichita's loss is Heavens gain.
