Arthur "Art" French Obituary
Arthur "Art" French

Sioux Falls - Arthur French passed suddenly on November 5, 2019 at Sanford Hospital in Sioux Falls, SD at the age of 56 with family by his side.

Arthur Charles French "Frenchie", was born in Glen Falls, New York on February 19, 1963 to Joyce Elaine French, and was raised by his dear Grandparents, respectfully his Mom and Dad, Arthur French and Helen Elizabeth "Betty" Russell.

Art completed his early education from Bolton Central School, NY Class of 1981. His secondary education was completed at Northeast Community College in Norfolk, NE Class of 1983, with a degree in Welding and Machining. His successful working career was centered around Upper Level C-Store Management throughout the Midwest.

On September 28, 2000 Art was united in marriage to Lori Labens in Negril, Jamaica. To this union the couple raised their beautiful blended family, consisting of their 10 children.

Art was a father, husband and grandfather first; always supported, and never missed an opportunity to say or show how much he loved his family. He was a huge sports enthusiast, Dunkin Donut drinkin', world travelin', laid back, feet in the sand, kind of man. His presence will be deeply missed by friends, family and all who knew him.

Art's immediate family includes his loving wife, Lori French; their beautiful children, Aaron (Makayla), Brandon, Cortney (Dohn), and Arthur Charles French III, and Steven, Christopher, Nicole, Brandi, Travis and Joshua Webster; sisters, Bonnie McWilliam, Bobbi Blanchard, Lori Crandall and Liza Urtz; brothers, Terry, Ron, Rex and Paul French; and 9 grandchildren that he adored.
