THURS Glenn R. "Bob" Arthurs, 89, of Stuart, FL, passed away on Wednesday, Dec. 26. He was born in Niagara Falls, NY on July 5, 1924 to Glenn Wyatt Arthurs and Lynn Emigh. Bob attended Niagara Falls High School and had the honor of being elected Governor of Boy's State in 1942. Later that year he joined the Navy V12 College Training Program while attending Dartmouth College on an accelerated pre-med program. He graduated from the University of Buffalo Medical School in 1947. He was resident otolaryngologist at Buffalo General and Buffalo Children's Hospital before being called back to active duty in the Korean War to serve in a MASH unit. Subsequently he was Chief of Staff, Head of Division of Otolaryngology, at St. Mary's Hospital in Lewiston, NY, and was an attending otolaryngologist at Niagara Falls Memorial Medical Center. He remained in active practice until 1980, when he retired to Stuart and enjoyed summers in Point Comfort, Quebec, Canada. Bob wed Joan Audrey Ross in 1952. They had three children in whom he took the greatest pride: Glenn and Ross Arthurs and Laura Scheuerell, all of whom survive him. When he married Dana (Dusty) Tone in 1980, he became the much-loved stepfather of Chip and Elmer Atkinson, Darcy Weir, and Sandra Price, as well as a beloved father figure and friend to Dana Tone Arthurs' stepchildren from a former marriage, Jerry and Bill Tone. All six "steplings" survive him. He is also survived by the fourteen grandchildren in whom he delighted. Bob made no distinction between blood and step offspring: he loved all alike and was adored by all in return. He will be sorely missed by every member of his extended family and by his many friends, particularly those at the Stuart Yacht and Country Club, where he enjoyed golfing, swimming, playing gin rummy, bridge, and poker-and earned the nickname "Dr. Full House." In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Boys Town, 200 Flanagan Blvd., P.O. Box 8000, Boys Town , NE 68010 or call 800-217-3700 or on the web: http://www.boystown.org A private memorial will be held at a later date in Quebec, Canada.
