Arthur worked at Porter’s Sand and Gravel for his brother, Ralph for many years until he retired in 2000. Before that he worked for the Village of Waverly Street department. He was always a very hard worker. He always loved the outdoors. He enjoyed mowing and taking care of his yard. It always looked neat. He enjoyed being with his family. He was a wonderful husband, father, uncle, grandfather and great grandfather. He will be missed by all who knew him. His smile could light up a room. It was contagious.
