He met the love of his life Margaret Sue Mitchell and they were married in 1949. They spent 58 years together until her passing in 2007. Arthur worked many different jobs over the course of his life including heavy equipment operation, truck driving, and teaching trade skills but ultimately retired as an owner of Carter Motor Company in 1980. He proudly served in the United States Army and was honorably discharged in 1953 with the rank of sergeant. In his later years he and Sue enjoyed fishing together and spending time with his family. He was a Master Mason and enjoyed fellowship with his Masonic brothers. He will be dearly missed by all that knew and loved him.
