Arthur was the owner and operator of AB Roofing in Asheville for twenty five years. He always took great pride in his work and will be remembered by the community for his hard work and dedication in the roofing industry. Outside of his career, Buster found joy in spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren. He had a special bond with them and treasured every moment they spent together.
