Arthur F. McGhee
ZUNI—Arthur Francis McGhee, 59, died Feb. 12, 2009, after a courageous fight with lung cancer.
Mr. McGhee was born and educated in the Mechanicsville area of Virginia.
He spent many years in the grocery business — first in Richmond, then at Cal-Ray followed by a stint as a route salesman with Lance before returning to the grocery business at Food Lion in Windsor.
He, also known as Stickman, loved a good joke, a silly prank and all those with whom he shared a laugh.
Survivors include his wife of 14 years, Joyce Hollowell of Zuni; his daughter, Megan M. Mowery of Virginia Beach; two stepsons and one daughter-in-law, Lee and Justin (Catherine) Jones; granddaughters, Samantha Lynn Mowery and Logan Jones, brightened his life and wrapped him around their fingers; his mother, Pauline P. McGhee of Mechanicsville; sister, Joan Adams (Cheatam); and brother, William G. McGhee.
He was preceded in death by his father, Robert P. McGhee; brother, Robert P. McGhee Jr.; and sister, Judith M. King.
A special thank you to Virginia Oncology Associates, Sentara Home Care and Hospice Program, our special neighbors, Donnie and Andrea West and Kathy Ramage, care giver and friend.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made to Suffolk Sentara Hospice Program or Ivor Rescue Squad.
A memorial service will be held Saturday at 2 p.m. in J.T. Morriss & Son Funeral Home, Purviance Chapel, 11414 General Mahone Highway, Wakefield, VA 23888.
