Not sure what to say?

God bless you Arthur. Thank you for coming into my life and teaching me many life's lessons. I know you and my Dad Louie are having your morning coffee at your favorite restaurant Sparta in Bedford, MA in heaven! RIF my friend!

Arthur was a one of a kind, one of our last WW II vets, he is the end of a legacy. He was a great friend and neighbor to Peggy and me. He watched our house and our dogs and took great care of us for many years. We had lots of laughs together and many, many great memories. A dear friend, I will miss him.

Arthur was my boss at Instrumentation Laboratories in 1978. He was a friend to me and helped to guide me in the right direction in my life. May God bless and keep him.

This man was the father and grandfather of two of the strongest women I know and have had the pleasure of knowing them (Bev and Stacey) in my life's journey. Thank you, Authur for leaving a legacy that has touched my life. Prayers and love to the family.

Arthur was a good friend. He would come twice a week to "check on me" when Russ passed away. when he was in Georgia he would call several times a week to "check on what is happening in Bedford." He liked my grandson and would ask how he was every time time we spoke. Brought me a dozen yellow roses and thanked me for being his friend. lots of other memories. He will never be forgotten . Rest in Peace Art

Arthur was a great guy, he would visit my dad Russ regularly and when my dad got sick he was one of the few that continued to come by to see him. I know my mom enjoyed his phone calls and the conversations they had too. It was always good to see him when he stopped by my parents.
My sympathy to the family, Rhonda ( Sibley) Perry

Condolences on your loss. Your care for him, a blessing.

I don't know you I'm so sorry to hear about your father's passing he is now resting in peace may god be. With you and your family you are all in my prays always remember the good times you always had with him
