Robert Arthur 11-11-1954 to 11-19-2013
Robert Began life in San Diego, CA. He was born to Mary Rigley Arthur and Lewis Lee Arthur. He grew up Surfing at the beaches in San Diego and LA. His mother and step father brought him to Texas as a teen. He made a surfboard while here in “shop,” but had to put surfing away as his favorite hobby. He discovered the guitar and later the pedal steel guitar. He made at least part of his living playing music for the next 40 years. He also worked as a carpenter and was very gifted. He was a hard worker and put in long hours between his two vocations.
Robert married Kerry Kerr on September 12, 1989. They were blessed with one son, Brandon Daniel Arthur. Brandon is a very gifted musician and he jammed with his dad (and argued music) constantly. Many trips were made to California. Robert and Brandon surfed the Pacific together.
Robert is survived by his wife and companion of 30 years, Kerry Kerr; son, Brandon Arthur; sisters, Tamara Williams and Suzanne Leverette; nephews, Jeremy and Joshua Gremillion, Collin Williams, and Quint Moore; uncle, Will Rigley; and cousin, Leslie Rigley. Robert will be missed by family and friends. Robert befriended everyone he met. He was full of curiosity and wonder. He could talk to just about anyone intelligently about their vocations and interests.
A memorial service will be planned at a later date.
