It is with great personal sadness that we pass along the sad news that our dear friend and long time Chapter R charter member Art Waltrip passed away peacefully in his sleep early this morning surrounded by his 3 children. Art’s family contacted us about noon today and ask that we contact Chapter members. Art had been battling cancer for several years. He was 85 years old the 1 st of January. He is survived by his wife Joann of Ruidoso, son Rick and daughters Kathy and Denice. Services are being handled by Anderson-Bethany Funeral Home in Roswell. Graveside services will be Saturday, March 29 th, at 11:00 AM, at South Park Cemetery, 3101 S. Main in Roswell. His family has requested that in lieu of flowers please make a donation to GWRRA Chapter NM-R.
