He was a member of St. Peter's Lutheran Church, Hughestown.

An excellent athlete, he was an avid runner who enjoyed mountain biking and taking kung-fu with his family. His family meant the world to him and he meant the world to his family. A loving husband, father, son, brother, relative and friend, he'll be forever missed.

His family would like to acknowledge all of the amazing doctors and staff who had given Arthur such great care throughout his illness, both locally and in Philadelphia.
