Subsequently the youngest member of his family arrived, Lorraine. Arthur became the dashing groom of Laura M. Mohr on August 7, 1943, celebrating 66 years of marriage prior to her passing. Their marriage was blessed with three children: Janice (Ernest) Saville (Post Falls, ID), Jo Anne (Gerald) Palko (St. John, IN) and John (Debbie) Young (Danville, KY). As the years passed they warmly welcomed seven grandchildren: Jennifer (Reggie) Dilliard, Julie (John) Hoffman, Elizabeth (Jacob) Niete, Andrew (Alissa) Palko, Matthew Palko, Jodi Saville, and Jeanie Saville, as well as seven great grandchildren: Dominic and Christopher Bouscio, Jackson and Carson Dilliard, Lucy Hope Niete, Benjamin Joseph Palko and William Michael Palko.
