I served in the Army.

Jay Steven Arthur, 63, passed away on Tuesday, February 20, 2018.

Steve was born on September 20, 1954, in Roswell New Mexico to Tommy and Louise (Freeman) Arthur. Following in the family trade, Steve was a skilled masonry contractor as his father Tommy and grandfather Otis Arthur both were. He spent over 40 years perfecting the family trade and passing it down to his sons.

A deep love of country called Steve to serve in the United States Army just out of high school. He graduated from Goddard in 1972 where he achieved the highest rank possible in ROTC. Steve was the manager of Sarge's Skating Rink during high school where he took to the floor and amazed spectators with his spinning and jumping skills. Steve was also a member of Grace Community Church.

Surviving Steve are his two sons, Steven Q. Arthur and John T. Arthur, both of Roswell. Also surviving him is his brother Jeff Arthur of Albuquerque, and sisters, Jerry Ann Palmer of Roswell, Jo Arthur of Lubbock, and Cindi Lucero of Roswell.

His parents, Tommy and Louise Arthur, along with his twin sister, Carol Joyce Arthur, and a brother, Jimmy Arthur preceded him in death.

Graveside services will be held at 2pm on Friday, February 23, 2018 at General Douglas L. McBride Veterans Cemetery with Jack Ferguson of Tinnie Baptist Church officiating.
