Donald A. “Donnie” Arthur, 62 years young, passed from his earthly life unexpectedly on Wednesday, July 24, 2019 at 1:20 am at Community Hospital South in Indianapolis. Don and his ‘younger by 15 minutes’ twin brother, Doug, were born on Saturday, October 27, 1956 at the Morgan County Hospital in Martinsville to the late Joseph Jonathon and Betty Lou (Decker) Arthur. Don, along with his four brothers, were all raised in Martinsville. He graduated from Martinsville High School with the class of 1975 and shortly thereafter, Don gained employment with AeroFab Corporation in Indianapolis. He was a dedicated employee at AeroFab for over 35 years, retiring in 2012 as an aerospace fabricator. Don had a love for old cars and spent countless hours refurbishing and restoring too many to mention; especially old Chevelles. His passion for Chevelles ran so deep that he had served as president of the Indiana Chevelle Club. He was also an avid Indy Car and NASCAR fan, he loved to watch Mecum Car Auctions, play golf, listen to music, and attend all the car shows he possibly could! To sum it up, Don was a beer and pizza connoisseur, who loved his family, fast cars, good music and a GREAT time! He will be missed and fondly remembered by his family and friends including his two daughters, Leah M. Arthur of Mooresville and Dawn L. (husband, Craig) Asbury of Indianapolis; twin-brother, Doug (wife, Brenda) Arthur of Indianapolis; sister by choice, Janet Arthur of Martinsville; four grandchildren, Mya Holman, Jake, Olivia, and Lorelei Asbury; two nephews, Eric Neal and Jason Arthur and four nieces, Michele Garza, Kim Nash, Jill Neal and Tiffany Chipps. Don was preceded in death by his parents; three brothers, William Edward Neal and Timothy J. and Jerome Arthur and another set of twin infant boys. Family and friends are invited to visit on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 from 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm at Neal & Summers Funeral and Cremation Center in Martinsville.
