Michael Wayne Arthur CHARLESTON - Michael Wayne Arthur, 69, died peacefully at home on June 25, 2014. A gathering of family and friends for a celebration of his life will be scheduled for a later date. The family extends a grateful thank you to Michelle Graves and Latasha Washing from Hospice of Charleston for their expert and compassionate care. Memorial donations may be made to Hospice of Charleston, 4975 Lacross Road, Suite 200, North Charleston, SC 29406. Mike was born in Dexter, MO, son of Albert W. Arthur (deceased), and Pansy L. Arthur, Flint, MI. He received an associate degree from Mott Community College, and two degrees from the University of Michigan: a BA and MPA - and proudly wore the Maize and Blue - Go Blue! He was an expert journeyman die maker for General Motors for 30 years, earning two major suggestion awards related to die making processes. Mike could fix anything! He had an inquisitive mind, always reading a variety of science magazines and working crossword puzzles. He had a keen sense of humor, as displayed in the newsletters he wrote for the Over-the Hill gang at Shadowmoss Golf Course. He enjoyed playing golf, as well as helping friends with their computer problems. He is survived by his "honey baby" Jacqueline Arthur; his mother, Pansy Arthur of Flint, MI; two sons, Jeffrey Arthur and Timothy Arthur of Flint, MI; his granddaughter, Mia Collins of Flint, MI; and the two children he helped to raise, Christine Boineau (Rick) of Summerville, SC, and Michael Koss of Lansing, MI. He is also survived by his two sisters, Rose Mary Jackson (Paul) of Swartz Creek, MI and Marsha Tropiano of Clearwater, FL; and his brother, Alan Arthur of Harrison Township, MI. He will be deeply missed by his wife, Jackie, who "loved him madly", and by all his friends on the Shadowmoss Compound.
