Arthur received his education in schools near his home. He was united in marriage to Dorothy Janning, November 11, 1952, at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church. In the early 1980's, Arthur and Dorothy opened the Far Out Cafe in Dunlap which they operated for ten years. From this business, they established a lunch wagon service which they operated until 2000, along with being involved with farming.
In his leisure time, he enjoyed reading, especially Louis Lemar western books, and he had a great memory for the story lines. Arthur also spent time working on wood crafts and tinkering. In his younger years, he enjoyed playing cards and fishing in the family pond. TV favorites were old westerns especially John Wayne films. He also took trips to Universal Studios and to various states to visit family.
