He very proudly served in the US Navy and retired in 1967. Arthur continued to serve others by working with the City of Albuquerque as a mechanic for the Albuquerque Police Department. There are two words that sum up Arthur's beliefs: service and patriotism. His hobbies included fishing and he was a proud and longtime member of the NRA.
