He enthusiastically made the crowds laugh and the children especially enjoyed his clown antics. He enjoyed riding in the yearly Dauphin Island parade and delighted in participating in the many Mardi Gras parades in Mobile, AL
An avid hunter, Arthur was preparing food plots just a few weeks ago for the upcoming deer hunting season. He will be looking down from heaven watching the deer and deciding whether this turns out to be a good season!
He loved his Airedale, CiCi, which he would take to Alabama Port to spend summer weekends fishing & swimming. CiCi happily accompanied him everywhere he went.
Arthur and his good friend Walter Cushion were inseparable, where you saw one you would see the other! They enjoyed working together for many years delivering propane to Stockton Gas Company customers and always had some type of project underway
Arthur was an active member of the Stockton Volunteer Fire Department, where he was the Captain and served as the Vice President of the Board of Directors.

Arthur was dedicated to service and would often be seen assisting at interstate traffic accidents and helping others in need.
Arthur took great care of his elderly relatives and became quite a cook over the last several years. He took pride in his culinary skills, often sharing pictures of his latest kitchen creations with family members and friends.
