Garth Charles Arthur

CAMBRIDGE SPRINGS — Garth Charles Arthur, 22, of 23961 Thornapple Drive, Cambridge Springs, passed away at his home of natural causes on Wednesday, Feb. 12, 2014.

Born on Nov. 25, 1991, in Meadville, Garth was a son of Susan Marguerite Weaver Arthur and John R. Arthur.

 Garth, a lifelong resident of Cambridge Springs, was a 2013 graduate of Saegertown Junior-Senior High School and was a participant of the Special Olympics. He was fond of music, being outdoors, therapeutic horse back riding, watching birds and fishing. Garth was a football, drag racing, motor cross and ice hockey fan, and was a Junior Erie Otter. Garth touched everyone he knew with his winning smile, sense of humor and his determination. He taught us all that it’s not what we are, but who we are. He will be deeply missed by all.

Arthur and his wife, Tracey, of Fleetwood and Alex Shuman and his wife, Stacey, of Chapmanville; two nephews, Tyler M.

He is also survived by other relatives from his blended family.
