Arthur Edward O’Connell

Jul 23,1943---Aug 01,2019

Arthur Edward O’Connell, 76, passed away Thursday August 1, 2019 surrounded by family. He was dearly loved and will be forever missed by his children, grandchildren, surviving relatives, and dear friends. He was a loving, kind, “I’ll do anything for you” kind of guy who loved country living. His hard-working hands were finally put to rest. He is now at peace.

Born in Boston he came to New Mexico for a visit and fell in love with the wide-open space. He moved to Albuquerque in 1966. He drove the open road working for ABF for 23 years. After retiring, he found his piece of land and moved out to Edgewood, NM where he said was his serenity.

A memorial will be held Friday August 16, 2019 at 1:30 pm Riverside Funeral Home 225 San Mateo NE 87108.
