Arson was a roofing construction worker and a seasonal laborer at the WV Wildlife Center in French Creek, WV. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, and anything outdoors. His greatest joy was living history re-enactments. It was the opportunity to teach those young and old how our ancestors not only survived but thrived by hunting, trapping, fishing and making the best of the bounty our Lord provided for us. He found many special friends among his fellow re-enactors.
In honoring Arson’s wishes he will be cremated.
