Arthur (affectionally known as Pap) possessed many talents and had the attitude that he could do anything the same or better than anyone else. Pap’s projects included building his own home, a pontoon boat, fixing and rebuilding vehicles and he had the vision and ability to create a trailer from scrap metal.
Pap was also known for the famous “Sunday Drive” to destinations unknown and a “No Trespassing” sign was a challenge to be conquered. Pap will also be remembered for helping anybody in their time of need even at the expense of his own needs.
Pap you will be greatly missed and thought of often. Your family wishes you a safe journey and hope you enjoy the great views along the way. Goodbye dear husband and father.
