    Arthur was a good and decent human being and very caring. My late wife Ilene and I were very fortunate to meet him and his wonderful wife Catherine back in the early 1960s through St. Demetrius Church, we have been dear close friends ever since. Moreover, he was my best man in my Greek wedding to Ilene at St. Demertios. We also worked for the same business for many years, including a year in Puerto Rico on assignments. We enjoyed many family gatherings with fun and laughter.
    My deepest condolences go to you Catherine, Irene and Joy and family. May his memory be internal.
