I would now like to take this time to let you know that Michael and I had a beautiful child together. I remember how we sung together and laugh a lot. It is most often in death that the good times should always be remembered and not the bad. May God Bless his family and continue to be blessed and appreciate who he was as a person, a father, and a friend.

I am so sorry for your loss. Arvis was a good friend to my late step-father Skip StJohn. It is crazy that I am just a young child when they were friends some 30 yrs ago and I felt compelled to write Arvis a letter. I came home yesterday & saw it was returned to me. After looking into that I had found he had passed 4 days after writing the letter. I am truly sorry for your loss. I remember Arvis always being kind to our family.

Truly sorry to see the news of the passing of Arvis. He was my 1st boss at Pepperidge Farm and we hit it off immediately. He was very good to me and I’ll never forget the short time that we had worked together. Rest In Peace Arvis!
