Arthur C. Wolford Obituary
Retired LTC Reverend Deacon Arthur C. Wolford left this life for the new life Tuesday, May 8, 2012. Born in South Bend, Ind., April 3, 1920, son of Clinton and Vera Wolford, Art was 92.
He was a member of the greatest generation. He was a decorated combat pilot in World War II. He flew "The Hump." He was also in the "test" community. He retired with 30 years' service.
He was an ordained deacon in the Episcopal Church for 50 years; his vocation was to the disabled. Unselfish to a fault, he volunteered his time to many organizations - VFW, American Legion, AF&AM, Scottish Rite, Shrine, Disabled Veterans and Boy Scouts of America (he was a past regional director), to name a few.
His committed life of service touched many. Known for his dedication to God and country, personal integrity and a wicked sense of humor, he touched many and will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
A memorial service is scheduled for Saturday, May 26, 2012, at St. John's Episcopal Church, 1114 Indiana Ave., at 10:30 a.m. All who knew Art are encouraged to attend. Art was preceded in death by his wife, Ruth, in 2006 and is survived by his son George, who teaches overseas.
