His passion for helping people kept him working up until June 2015 at the age of 90.
Arthur loved to travel. He was always up for a new location or a new experience. He travelled all across North America, British Isles, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, South America, and Antarctica. He would travel by car, train, boat, bicycle, bus, plane and motorcycle. He shared his love of travel with his family and they inherited his love of exploring new places and new people.
Arthur loved to help people. He loved to listen to people and ask probing questions. He always made time for friends and family.
