Chai_Arthur(May 7, 1935 to September 12, 2014)

After being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer more than one year ago, Arthur left us on September 12th, 2014 to pursue his next great adventure.

He is survived by Gloria, his wife and love of 47 years. He was the best of fathers to four sons: David (Genevieve), Greg (Jessica), Peter (Rona) and Tim (Erin), proud Gung-gung of 10 (soon to be 11) grandchildren and loving uncle to numerous nephews and nieces.

Born in Kingston (Jamaica), Arthur attended a Jesuit seminary in Massachusetts for over a decade before pursuing his career in teaching and guidance at Paul Dwyer Catholic High School in Oshawa and St. Joseph's College School in Toronto.

In addition to spending time with family, Arthur was an avid sports fan who enjoyed travelling and fine scotch. He was well known to chat with anyone at any time, to enjoy good food and to dance the night away with our Mom until the very last song. His booming voice is now silent, but will not be forgotten.
