He was an Army Air Corps veteran who served as a crew chief in the 352nd Fighter Group in the European theater during WWII.
Arthur is survived by his beloved wife of 69 years, Doris, of Rising Sun, MD; his daughters: Deborah L. Jeanes and her husband, Stephen, of Reedsville, PA, Bethany R.

A memorial service will be held at 1 PM on Saturday, March 18, 2017 at Grace Bible Chapel. There will be a private graveside service for the family. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be made to, "Gideons International" and sent in care of R. T. Foard Funeral Home, P.A., P.O.Box 248, Rising Sun, MD 21911.
