I am so very sorry for your loss. Losing a loved one in death is very painful. May you cherish the wonderful memories you have of Arthur and find comfort in the words found at Isaiah 41:10 where God says "Do not be afraid for I am with you. Do not be anxious for I am your God. I will fortify you, yes, I will help you, I will really hold on to you with my right hand of righteousness”. Please go to jw.org if you have any questions about "what happens to our loved ones we lose in death"?

So sorry to hear about Art passing. He and I spent many a day in the woods and on the water as well as attending Myers, Jenkins, and Andrew Junior College together. Art was a unique individual and fun guy to he around. I lost contact with him until a couple of months ago when Allen Bradham gave me his telephone number. He and I spoke on the phone for a while remembering old times. I have many a fond memory of the days we spent deer and Turkey hunting and pike fishing at Slater hunting club. I know he will be missed.

Arthur William Wilcox, Jr., passed away on May 31, 2019 after a long illness. He was the son of Arthur William Wilcox, Sr. and Ernestine Hyers Wilcox, now deceased. He was 65 years old and was born in Savannah on June 26, 1953. Art attended public schools in Chatham County and graduated from Jenkins High School in 1971. He worked at International Paper until retirement. Art had a great love of the outdoors. He was an avid hunter and fisherman until his eyesight and overall physical health prevented him from doing either.
