Obituary of Chandler McArthur

Douglas Chandler McArthur passed away on December 1, 2018 at age 49. 

He was the first born to D. Ray and Diane S. McArthur.  Chandler was a loving big brother to Jason McArthur and to Paige McArthur Guest and a loving uncle to four nieces and five nephews.  He was loved and known for his big smile, a warm embrace upon greeting and leaving, his sweet nature, and for his devotion to his blood family, his gathered family and his many friends. 

Chandler was an incorrigible practical joker and was known for his ability to strike his victim by surprise, followed by his infectious laughter.  Chan was an animal lover and especially loved dogs.  He was a strong father figure to several non-biological children that he loved as his own.  He was dearly loved in life and will be long-remembered and sorely missed by all who knew him and loved him. 

He was preceded in death by his four loving grandparents Dan and Edna McArthur and Ransom and Juanita Smith.

A memorial service celebrating Chandler’s life was held on Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 2:00 pm at the United Church of Chapel Hill, 1321 Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, Chapel Hill, 27514. 

Memorials in Chandler’s name may be directed to the Humane Society of the United States, 1255 23rd Street NW, Suite 450, Washington, DC, 20037, www.humanesociety.org.

The McArthur family is under the care of Walker’s Funeral Home of Chapel Hill.
