Carlos Ray Arthur, 57, of Arlington, TX, died Saturday morning, September 18, 2021.
He was born on February 29, 1964, in Portsmouth, Ohio, the son of David and Sharon (Frazier) Arthur and Joyce (Adkins) Bauman and graduated from Northmor High School and Pioneer Career and Technology Center. He worked many years as a tool and die maker and could teach himself anything—from trigonometry to baking pepperoni bread.
Carlos enjoyed working in his machine shop for many years. Whether he was welding or fixing cars, he was most in his element when tinkering with or creating things. He was social in the community and never knew a stranger: his personality shone brightest when he was helping others. Carlos also enjoyed visiting local streams to collect and polish his favorite rocks.
Carlos is survived by his three daughters: Tabytha Arthur (Tucker Fogg) of Bexley, Ohio, Paige Arthur of Riceboro, Georgia, and Carlynn Arthur (James Workman) of Hiram, OH; his sisters Rhonda Craft and Beth Taylor of Arlington, Texas; brothers Tim Arthur of Ontario, and David Jr. (Karin) Arthur of Lexington, Ohio; and many nephews, nieces, loved ones, and friends.
He was preceded in death by his father, David Arthur; mother, Sharon (Frazier) Arthur; mother, Joyce (Adkins) Bauman; Grandparents, Carl and Elizabeth (Betts) Arthur, Earnest and Nancy “Nannie” (Fraley) Adkins, and his sister Michelle Leonard Jordan.
