Arthur loved his family and friends and often reminded us that nothing was more important than family. He was such a funny guy nd has never met a stranger, he seems as if he knew everybody. He loved home cooked meals and many of us has gotten that one phone call with him saying "what cha cooking?" he loved spending time with family and friends he also loved to travel the highway even if was only for a ride.
