Arthur was born February 13, 1944 to Margarita and Florencio Montellano. Arthur proudly served his country in the United States Army and considered it his greatest honor. In 1969, he married the love of his life Gloria. Together they raised 5 beautiful kids from which came many grandchildren and great-grandchildren who he absolutely adored. He considered his grandchildren and great-grandchildren his pride and joy. Arthur was a kind and gentle soul who loved to joke and share stories about his life and time in the military. He was slow to anger and quick to love and the anchor to our family.
