Though we actually met only once...Arthur was within "earshot" on 145.800
and I could count on him updating me on any of the excitement surrounding
MIR and ISS.

He was especially passionate about the space stations and had many personal
contacts with the astronauts through sheer perseverance. He was not a "big
gun" but utilized minimal equipment and minimal power to accomplish what
many dream to do.

A "voice of reason" in the Merrimack Valley of Massachusetts, Arthur was a
resource of the latest information about ISS and the Shuttles.

His sudden passing only reinforces the frailty of life and the need to
pursue your passions now and not put them off for the future.

Arthur, I among many, will miss you.
