In addition to serving his nation, Arthur also worked in the office on the Nickel Plate Railroad and as a door-to-door milk man for the Old Meadow Creamery.  As a boy and a young man, he loved and played baseball into his 40’s.  In 1988, he and his wife Lillian retired and made a permanent move to Florida where he would enjoy camping, the outdoors, and the game of golf. Arthur loved playing golf in both Florida and in Land Harbor, North Carolina where he and Lillian would spend their summers.  He was known for his sense of humor, his smile, his quick wit, and his simplicity.  Arthur was an active member of Christ Lutheran Church in Brooksville.
