Douglas “Doug” was born July 4, 1946, in Crossett, AR to Woodrow and Ida McArthur. His faith became sight on February 25, 2024, with family by his side.

He married Deborah Tice McArthur on November 15, 1972. To that union, they added five children. He and Deborah’s main goal was to ensure that their children knew the Lord personally so that his family circle would be unbroken.

The great loves of his life were God and his word, family and gardening.

Loved ones gone before include his parents Woodrow and Ida McArthur and sister, Ann Hicks.

Those left to cherish his memory are his wife of 52 years, Deborah McArthur
