Arthur (94) was a proud man who held many titles in life that had a profound effect on all around him. He worked on a dairy farm with his father at a young age and went on to work as a switchman before becoming the last train conductor at Spreckels Sugar. He trained many, who will tell you they couldn't quit fill his shoes no matter how hard they tried before he retired after 55 years at Spreckels Sugar.
Arthur’s door was always open to all and he enjoyed gardening, NASCAR, and converting grapes into juice (wink wink). But his most important role was being a Husband and family man.
Arthur is survived by his eldest son Arthur, his son Matt, and only daughter Cherie. He was predeceased and is now reunited with his Wife Betty, son Joe, grandsons Christopher and Steven. He was a proud grandpa, great grandpa, loved his siblings and a father figure to many. For a quiet man he spoke volumes by always living a righteous life for all to follow and admire.
Papa, you have passed on and will be dearly missed but your legend will live on forever!
Arthur’s family will host a funeral service on January 8, 2024 at Healey Mortuary Salinas Ca at 1pm. Burial to follow at Garden of Memories Cemetery Salinas. Ca.
