Dear Lucille and Family, we are so very sorry to hear of Arthur's
passing. Art was a true character, one of a kind. Art spent some time here with us on Galiano Island many years ago...renovating parts of our house and building a deck, carrying really heavy driftwood logs up from the beach to use in construction. He was a major force in the beautification of our home. His beautiful carpentry is an ongoing tribute to him. He was a strong hard worker, very determined, and very funny. We treasure those times.
Art has such a huge heart, a real gift with people, and always had a twinkle in his eye. He will be greatly missed. We send you our deepest sympathy and love,
Annette Shaw and Paul LeBlond

I will miss Uncle Arthur's big hugs, but will remember him with love, joy and thanks when enjoying the beautiful swing he made for my mother, which now has a very special place in backyard in Atlanta.
Love and blessings to my Aunt Lucille, Andrea and Greg during this difficult time of loss and grieving.

We will miss his smiling face sitting on his deck and raising vegetables. God Bless Lucille and the rest of Arthur's family.

Dear Lucille and Family
Please accept my deepest sympathies for your loss. I am so thankful that I have had the opportunity to know and interact with Arthur. Arthur was a good man and a friend to all he met....a man who lived life with his glass "half full" while laughing at the things less important in life. His Love and Adoration for life and particularly for you, Lucille, was truly inspiring. I know he will be greatly missed by you and all of those close to him. May you cherrish the many memories and find comfort in knowing that Arthur lives on in the live's of those he loved.
May he be blessed with plenty of Cedar to mold into great works of passion and may his vegetable garden continue to be free of weeds with an abundant harvest. Much Love and admiration to you Lucille...may God Bless.
Sincerely, Mark Pilot and Family

Dear Lucille, I was so sorry to read that Arthur has passed away. He was such a friendly, outgoing and nice person. He did some really nice work at my home, one project of which was restoring an old stone well in my back yard. I think of him when I look out the window and see it there. Please accept my deepest sympathy. I know you will miss him dearly. Sincerely, Judy Johnson
