Arthur nick name “Art” was a very strong hard worker who worked as a Journeyman Brick Layer & Cement Mason for many years, during those years he traveled to many different places till he settled in Alberta, Canada with his family. He stayed in Alberta for the later part of his life. Here he watched his beautiful family grow. No matter where he roamed Newfoundland was always his home. He enjoyed talking and laughing with his family and friends. Some of his favorite past times were playing cards (crib), working on puzzles, watching western shows, he loved collecting stuffed animals and sharing them with everyone. He filled the room with laughter and smiles. He had his own personal struggles throughout the years, He found comfort in the Lord and strong in faith. He had lots of wisdom and willing to lend a listening ear. Arthur’s favorite bibles verses were Matthew 6:9-13; Luke 11:1-13. Proverbs 18:10 The name of the Lord is a strong tower; the righteous run into it and are safe. Nehemiah 8:10 Do not Grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.
He was loved by so many and will be deeply missed. Forever Loved, Forever Treasured, Never Forgotten, Always in Our Hearts!
