Sorry to hear of Paul's passing. I don't hear much of the WSMR bunch anymore. Tony Gutierrez is my source of any WSMR news.

Joy and Family,
I was saddened to hear of Paul's passing. My good memories go back to 1982 when I transferred to what was then ARMTE. Paul was such a down to earth and very approachable man, even as he raised through the ranks. I will think of him and miss him when I drive through the neighborhood. You all are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless!

We were honored and blessed to have known Paul. He was a true patriot who loved God, family and Country. Though a “high ranking” Naval Officer, and civilian, he was very down to earth and friendly. We extend our sincere condolences and prayers to Joy and family.

Lucy and I were so blessed to have been a friend to the finest naval officer in the United State Navy, Admiral Paul Arthur. We will miss him dearly for he was my mentor that I looked up to. I truly enjoyed my times being with the Admiral in uniform inspecting the NJROTC at Gadsden and Santa Teresa High Schools, the meets with the ROA and at NMSU's ECEA. We loved the Admiral very much. Jesus has taken the Admiral to his new command. I salute you Admiral until we meet again. God Bless and Fair Winds. Very Respectfully, CAPT and Mrs. Vicente Garcia

Sir -- THE example of an officer and a gentleman. I have to wonder where Bill would be if you had not walked thru that gate that day. We are forever grateful and will never forget you. See you on the other side. The Childers.

RADM Arthur was everything you could want in a Naval Officer. He treated both officer and enlisted with dignity and respect. We met in 1967 when I came home from Vietnam to attend NMSU. He encouraged me all the way and is one of the major reasons I stayed in the Navy Reserve. He will be missed greatly.

My remembrance of the Admiral will be seeing him in downtown Cruces during one of his runs; he's an inspiration to "go the distance". Oh, and thanks, RADM, for letting us build that homecoming float at your house...

RADM Arthur was my senior rater at WSMR. I worked with him on the Range Commanders Council where he proved to be the most patriotic and diligent public service I ever met. He leaves behind a legacy of ethics, love of country and family, and professional pride. Job well done!
