It is with deep regret to advise that Arthur passed away this morning after a long fight with illness.Arthur was a man of great integrity,honour and respect and will be greatly missed as a real friend and family man by all of us who knew him well.Arthur regularly gave up his own time to help the Rover's in any way he could.We send our condolences to his family at this difficult time.
Thanks for letting us know Stephen. Very sad news indeed and I would like to pass condolences from all at the club to Arthur's family at that this difficult time.
I had known Arthur by sight for many years as he would appear with his grandson at many a game, home and away.
Since I became chairman 3 years ago I got to know Arthur very well through his selfless volunteering on match days in the shop and as a member of the Thursday club , quietly doing whatever had to be done to help his beloved Rovers. Arthur also was a founder member of the memories group and enjoyed nothing better than a blether about all things Rovers.
He was a true diehard and a very lovely guy. I remember one thoroughly cold and miserable day down at Dumbarton when Arhtur saw I was heading to the train station, invited me into his car and dropped me at my front door snug and warm. RIP.
Hi All, not often I post here but on behalf of my entire family I just want to thank you all for the kind words said about my Granda. He loved this club and the people who are a part of it so I know it would have meant the world to him if he could see what you have written. All the best - Gregor
Top man, Arthur. I had many an amiable halftime chat with him in the old smokers' corner near the club shop, bemoaning or lauding what we had just seen. Guys like Arthur were and are the lifeblood of our wee Club.He will be sadly missed. RIP, Mr J.
Hi again - just back to thank everyone for the flowers that were sent today and again for the kind words. A number of our family will be coming to the game on Saturday so I'm sure you'll get more thanks from them too.
