  1. I met Arthur a little over 20 years ago, first as a customer, and then I was doing business with him as a friend. He was a special man. I loved to visit with him and sometimes that would be over an hour. Then we just had cut it off or we would still be there. I will really miss our visits so I will have to just do all of the talking from now on. I spoke to his daughter Shanna this morning and found out that his wife and her mother had died also. Rest in peace Arthur.

  2. There’s nothing bad anyone can honestly say about Arthur. My dad worked for him for about 15 years while I was in Jr. High and High School. I later worked for Arthur for a time back in the mid 80s. Always fair and understanding, but he demanded excellence. Quick witted and a sharp mind, and a human facts machine about everything and anything related to the glass business. I am saddened to learn today of his passing. He taught me a lot about how to work. He had a”high motor” and was always brightly shining. The world lost a good ‘un when Arthur passed. RIP.

  3. I worked at Custom Screen and Door in the 70s. Arthur did all our plate glass work.
    I was fortunate enough to come back in contact with him about 25 years later when we had rental properties.
    Arthur was just a 6ft walking heart. He was always trying to help someone out.
    May God grant peace to the family.

  5. I miss the days of fishing South of the border with Arthur & several others that he can now fish with in Heaven. Your humor & friendship will be surely missed. Catch a big bass up there. Until we meet again my friend. RIP
