Arthur Melvin Fleming, a beloved husband and father, passed from this life in Stillwater, Oklahoma to be in the presence of his Lord and Savior on December 21, 2019.
Arthur was born in Cherry Tree, Pennsylvania on October 10, 1921 to Max and Effie Fleming. The oldest of seven children, he is survived by sisters Bertena and June and brother Jim. He is preceded in death by his wife, parents, and sisters Arthenia, Esther and Ruth.
One of his greatest joys and memories is of spending his summers on his grandfather’s farm where he drove a team of horses for planting and harvesting. He entered WWII in October 1942 on his 21st birthday. After receiving training as an aircraft mechanic and in infantry tactics, he participated in the invasion of Tarawa and served there for 18 months. In the spring of 1945, he returned from the Pacific and was stationed at the Norman Oklahoma Naval Air Station. On VJ day, he married his beautiful wife, Anne Louise Craver of Emeigh, Pennsylvania, and was discharged from the Navy in December of 1945.
After returning home, he and his dad built several homes until two of his sisters convinced he and his wife to move to Southern California where he worked in the test lab and as a rigger at the Northrop Aircraft Corporation. Later her worked for the county of Los Angeles as a surveyor, and remained there until his retirement.
Arthur became a born-again Christian in 1968, and attended the Hosanna Assembly of God church in Stillwater, Oklahoma until his passing. He is survived by his four children, Anne Gaskill of Weeki Wachee, Florida, Edward Fleming of Perkins, Oklahoma, Patricia Harrison of Tulsa, Oklahoma and Glenn Fleming of Stillwater, Oklahoma, five granddaughters, two grandsons and seventeen great grandchildren.
A funeral service will be held at Strode Funeral Home on December 28th at 2:00 p.m. He will be interred alongside his wife at Forest Lawn Cemetery in Cypress, California.

Art Fleming was my Uncle, the older brother of my mother Esther. Art Fleming was a one of a kind great man. I never met anyone like him. The old saying of "they don't make them like that anymore" applies to Art Fleming. I enjoyed playing golf with Art and visiting with him. Art was smart, insightful, and offered great advice about life and various topics. I wish that I had traveled to Stillwater to visit with Uncle Art one more time before he passed. I cherish my memories of Uncle Art and will never forget him.
