Sherrian and family: I am saddened to see that Arthur has passed. My deepest sympathies to you and the family. Mr Pare singing at my fathers (Raymond Delores) funeral was the one and only request he made prior to his demise. Hard to believe he has been gone 35 years now and my mom 10 years.

I vividly recall when Our Dad was on A Weekly Bowling League, back in The 1960's. when I was eight/nine years of age, and I would sneak-up to the approach, and of course dry my hand's on the hand dryer, all while I was most certainly fixed on surely getting a good look @Dad plowing down those Pin's, as many watching would expect! him to do as well, too!
