Arthur F. Loux, 69, of Stilwell, KS, died peacefully at his home on December 29, 2013. He was born on October 16, 1944, in Port Jervis, NY, to the late Sylvia Lauer Loux Dewey and Arthur Francis Loux. He grew up in Milford, PA, graduated from Lehigh University in 1966, and worked for 30 years in computer systems at Mutual Benefit Life (later Fortis). He found his true vocation in the study of American history, becoming a nationally recognized expert on the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Shortly before his death he completed work on his book, a day-by- day account of the life of John Wilkes Booth. Over the years he visited the graves of hundreds of Civil War generals. He enjoyed playing the guitar, banjo, and harmonica and planning landscaping projects for his yard. Surviving are his wife of 41 years, Kathleen M. Loux; daughters Jennifer R. Loux (Melvin P.
