Willard Noel "Will" Arehart

Willard Noel Arehart "Will" On July 20, 2013, after a long and valiant struggle, Will moved on to the next leg of his journey. Where? Only speculation. But we can all rest assured he is well beyond the pain and suffering of the last few years. Preceded in death by his father, Dr. Carl O. Arehart; mother, Elizabeth Arehart and brother, Ernest Arehart. Will leaves behind his life partner, Michael Yeomans; several cousins and an enormous number of special friends from Florida, Ohio, Arizona, California and many points in between. Will graced the world with his presence December 28, 1939. Born and raised in Ohio, Will graduated from the Ohio State University system in 1967. In 1968, Will completed his masters program at the University of Arizona. TUSD was most fortunate to have his dedication and services for just short of 28 years. Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Randall Cohen and Dr. Peter Catalano, whose continuous care and expertise extended our time with Will. Also to Agape Hospice personnel for their care and comfort in Will's final days. As per Will's wishes, there will be no services: at Will's insistence however, there will be a party-date, time and location as yet to be determined. Announcement to follow. Never Gone. Never Forgotten. Forever Will. Michael
