McArthur, Ralph  
Ralph Arnold McArthur St. George, Utah Ralph Arnold McArthur passed away on Dec. 17, 2014. He was born in St. George, Utah on May 14, 1932 to Arnold and Lola Hafen McArthur. He married Reta Reid on Sept. 12, 1952 in the St. George Temple. Ralph started working with his father a young age and developed a love of work right from the beginning! He graduated from Dixie High School where he played football and was a member of the FFA. Ralph worked for Milne Truck Line where he met his future wife, Reta. A few weeks after their marriage, he reported to boot camp and served in the Korean War. Because of his experiences in Korea, he was very patriotic and loved the United States of America! He was always a farmer at heart, but provided for his family by running a service station, doing custom farm work and serving as the Washington County Road Supervisor for 20 years. He would work from sunup to sundown until retirement when he took time to go to the temple every day. Service was a huge part of his life. He lovingly served his wife, Reta thru her declining years. He grew a garden mostly so he could give it all away! Ralph faithfully delivered his "greens" to anyone who knew how to use them. After Reta passed away in 2010, Ralph met Connie Nacey while serving at the Meadows Retirement Community. They were married on March 29, 2012. Ralph very much enjoyed her companionship for the last years of his life. She has watched over him and has been a wonderful helpmeet to him. He was a member of the LDS Church and had a devout testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He served in many capacities in the church including Sunday School Teacher, Young Men's President and as a counselor in multiple bishoprics. He was currently serving as the High Priest Group Leader in the LDS Branch at the Meadows. He had served as a temple worker and was working toward his personal goal of performing 5,000 endowments. Ralph's unwavering testimony was an example to many, especially his family. He is survived by his wife, Connie McArthur of St. George, and his children: Kent (Karla) McArthur of Brigham City, UT; Kari (Ross) Sanford of Medford, OR; Suzy (Ron) Edwards of Sandy, UT; Mark (Jodie) McArthur and Cathy (Daren) Aitken all of St. George, UT; 19 grandchildren and 21 great grandchildren; and his siblings: Loretta (Gerald) Schiefer, Arlene (Dorrel) Booth, Ramona (Gary) Porter, Donald (Karan) McArthur and Annette Lounsbury. He was preceded in death by his parents, his wife, Reta, and his grandchildren, Geoffrey McArthur, Shelly Sanford and Brigs Sanford.
