Arnold McCully Matthews

Arnold retired from John Deere in 1987 as a Pattern Maker after a noble 39 years of service.

Known as an honourable "papa", he proudly leaves behind his son Ronald Matthews (Wendy), granddaughter Katlee (Ivan), grandson Shawn (Shelley) and great grandchild Jack.
Reunited with his wife (Esther Matthews nee Purdy), daughter (Judith Bradley nee Matthews) parents (Earl and Iola Matthews) and siblings (Alfred, Chesley, Irene, Beatrice and Fern).

Arrangements are under the direction of the Mattatall~Varner Funeral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro.
