Our heartfelt sympathies and prayers are extended to your family in the passing of Art to his heavenly reward. A rich blessing for him, but a bittersweet occasion for us. As a student at Taylor University in the mid-1950's, I opened my first checking account at The Upland Bank. In fact, I have in my desk and still use a key tag from The Upland Bank that I received at that time! For over 50 years it has held one key - for a metal box that I have used for personal financial records since my college days. The Phone number in the 1950's was 6-7373 in Upland and 2-2306 in Marion. The reverse side is three-dimensional, that discloses the business hours and days when you turn it slightly. Our periodic contacts at that time were revitalized when I became a Board Trustee for Taylor about 12 years ago. Both personally and as a Trustee, we have admired and been blessed by Art's loyalty to Taylor personally and financially. We will miss him at our Board meeting dinners, where he and his wife were regular guests. May the Lord provide you comfort, peace and encouragement during the weeks ahead. Sincerely, Roger & Marilyn Beaverson

We really liked Art and all he has done for Upland and TU. He was my patient for many years. I am thankful that he WAS ready to meet his Lord and Saviour. Art will be missed. God bless the family. Mike and Rise

Please accept our sympathy during this time of grief. We also know it is a time of celebration of a life spent in God's service. There must have been some party in Heaven when Mr. Hodson showed up! He represents everything that we want to be in our walk with God. We wish we could be there in person, but we are in PA. and cannot get back until Wednesday. Know we are praying for your family. Sincerely, Mike and Melinda Hornback , Chaplins at White's Residential and Family Services Thank you, Mike and Melinda Hornback

My sympathies go out to your family for your loss. Art will be missed greatly. I will always have good memories of spending time with him and Mary at the house on the farm. The dinners at the booth table were always fun and the memories will always stay with me. Regards, Mo Tatman Thank you, Mo Tatman

I am sorry to hear about Arthur's passing, but relish the fact that he lived such a long and wonderful life. I remember fondly growing up with him always around and him teaching me lessons that I remember to this day. He was a great mentor for me early on, and I will always cherish that. I send my warmest regards to the entire family. Love, Dereck
