Charles Gregory "Greg" Arbuckle
43, of Dennison, passed away Wednesday, July 9, 2014 from injuries sustained in a motor vehicle accident. Born June 3, 1971 in Dover, he was a son of Frank and Caroline Sue (Bowditch) Arbuckle of Tappan Lake.
Greg was a graduate of Harrison Hills Vocational School and a lifelong resident of the area. He was the owner and operator of Arbuckle Service who was well known for his devotion to his work as an excavator. He was also an avid farmer who loved to make hay and care for his farm. He will probably be best remembered for his devotion to volunteer fire departments throughout the area, having served faithfully on the Uhrichsville, Tappan and Warwick Twp. (Tuscarawas) Volunteer Fire Departments. His favorite pastime was white water rafting. Greg was Christian by faith.
In addition to his parents, Greg is survived by his fiancée and loving companion of 16 years, Nan Giumenti of the home and her children, Nicole, Todd (Chanell) and Doug (Amanda) Giumenti; brothers, Lee (Jessica) Arbuckle of Columbus and Jeffrey (Ronda) Arbuckle of Scio; nephews, Matthew and Brady Arbuckle; and maternal grandfather, Harold Dean Bowditch of Uhrichsville. He was preceded in death by a son, Logan Arbuckle; fiancée, Nikki Luyster; maternal grandmother, Margaret Bowditch; and dear aunt, Jean Bowditch.
Services, officiated by Chaplain David Carrick, will be held at 11 a.m. on Monday, July 14, in Park Christian Church in Dennison. Interment will follow in Uhrichsville's Union Cemetery with a firemen's committal service. Visitation will be 3 to 7 p.m. on Sunday in Park Christian Church. Those wishing to honor his memory by a charitable contribution are encouraged to do so to their local volunteer fire department, in lieu of flowers.
