Arthur Buchanan 1952-2018
Later in life he began work as a psychiatric technician in California before coming to Iowa. No matter how hard he worked, he would always come home with candy and smiles for the children in his life, and many of us owe a part of who we are to his big heart and gentle nature. He was a kind and loving husband, father, grandfather, and uncle. He was everything he needed to be for everyone he loved. Art was a homebody, preferring to spend time with his family and his pets while he watched television or read.
He is survived by his wife Margie, his grandchildren Brandalynn Barritt (and her husband Jake), Alyssa Alt (and her husband John), Danielle Buchanan, and Angelina Dana, his daughter Janet Dana and her husband Doug, his daughter-in-law Becky Buchanan, his sister Becky Sanow and her husband Jim, and many nieces and nephews who will miss him terribly.
For those wishing to pay their respects to Art, his service will be at the Greenwood Schubert Funeral Home in Marcus on Wednesday, May 2nd at 2:00 p.m. Anyone willing to speak about how he touched their lives is more than welcome to share stories or memories of him.
