Arthur B. Carnahan Obituary
Carnahan Arthur B. Carnahan, age 77, of Powell, Ohio, previously of Youngstown, passed away July 25, 2014, in Columbus. He was born May 2, 1937 in McKeesport, PA to the late Earl and Ruth Carnahan. Art was a 1955 graduate of Liberty H.S., Youngstown, OH. He married his high school sweetheart, Marjorie Stephenson, in 1957. At the age of 18 he became a volunteer firefighter for the Liberty Twp. Fire Department, near Youngstown, and he also began work for Kroger's. At age 28 he was promoted to manager of a Kroger's supermarket in Youngstown, and was the youngest manager of a Kroger's store at that time. He later was the owner and operator of both the Convenience Mart Deli and the Town Hall Tavern, while also continuing in the fire service. He retired as Chief of the Liberty Twp. Fire Department in 1990. In later years, Art and Marjorie traveled the country with their business, ABC Cemetery Sales, living in Austin and Galveston, TX, Salt Lake City, UT, Kane and Indiana, PA, Wheeling, WV, and Bowling Green, OH. Most recently, Art worked at Kingwood Memorial Park in Lewis Center, OH. He was a leader and an organizer, and an optimist who loved life. His greatest joy was his wife, Marjorie, and his family, and he especially loved to plan special family gatherings and events. Art had many friends, always taking pleasure in being able to help others. He enjoyed golfing, most recently with his group of friends on Mondays at St. Albans Golf Club. Art will be dearly missed by his family and friends. He is survived by his wife, Marjorie (Stephenson) Carnahan. Also surviving are his children, Russ (Randi) Carnahan and Carrie (Jamie) Young; grandchildren, Brian, Michael, Stephen, and Haley Carnahan and Katie and Julie Young; siblings, Lee (Ruth) Carnahan, Roger (Roselyn) Carnahan, Carolyn (Leon) Jones, Janet (John) Quirke, and Ruth (Craig) Milliman; and many nieces, nephews and cousins for whom he had great love and affection.
