Arthur you were one in a million. Love Karen Verbeek

Arthur, you were the best neighbour anyone could ever ask for. You welcomed me and my boys into the street with open arms and a caring heart. Your cakes, helpful advice and caring nature will be sadly missed, not just by my family but by all. Your passing has cut deep with all of us here in our wee street. You will be forever missed. And too your family, we are thinking of you all and are sending our deepest sympathys.

All our love,

Your neighbors xxx


Your compassion, kindness, humour, and selflessness made you the quintessential 'Good Keen Man'. You made Alport Place the amazing place it was, and always had a smile and willingness to help those who needed it.

Leaving Alport Place I knew that my Grandmother would be ok, because you were there.

Both Hope and I will treasure all your tips and tricks, and will always remember the day of the earthquakes when you came over with this massive venison back...

You came to my aid and Mums on more than one occasion, you have been a wonderful warm friend our kind neighbor and lighthouse. Arthur you cared for all around you.

Your cake, kindness, laughter and friendship will forever be missed. Thank you, thank you, thank you

I am very proud to call you my father,and will miss our chats over a cuppa and a biscuit,or some cake that you had made.
