He is not survived by any relatives but had many neighbors who treasured knowing him. Friends may call from 5:00 to 7:00 on Wednesday, June 12, at the Collins Funeral Home, 92 East Avenue Norwalk.

  1. It was an honor to be a friend to Arthur and help him as I could. He never asked for anything but warmly appreciated any kindness. God rest.

  • Arthur over time became a good friend and avid supporter of both the lighthouse and personally to both of us
    always suportive physically and with words of encouragement.
    His prescence will be missed on many levels for many years to come.
    May he rest in peace
