July 12, 1952 - May 25, 2013. 'Art' was born and raised in AZ and spent the last 21 years in Santa Barbara with his high school sweetheart and wife of 42 years. Art loved his daughter and never missed an opportunity to play with his two grandsons. He served and encouraged his Church family faithfully for over 20 years. He welcomed everyone with a big hug and always made you feel special. A man of faith and encouragement, Arthur will be missed.
Art was preceded in death by his father Samuel and mother Bellen. Art is survived by his wife Nancy, daughter Jocelyn and grandsons Dylan and Logan; four brothers Daniel (NM), Arnold (CA), Fernando (AZ) and Anthony (CA). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to First Baptist Church of Santa Barbara Ministry.
