November 12, 1927 - December 31, 2019
Celebrating the Life of Arthur E. Locke Sr. Mr. Arthur E. Locke Sr., 92, departed this life on December 31, 2019 at his home. Born on November 12, 1927 in Rosedale, Kansas to the union of Arthur E. and Gertrude Bradford Locke. Both parents, three brothers, eight sisters, his wife Nell D. Locke, daughter Dorothy L. son Harold E. all preceded him in death. On January 21, 1944, Arthur and Nell D. Taylor were united in marriage. To this union nine children were born and one foster son. He attended school in Kansas City, KS. Arthur was a member of the Bethel Seventh Day Adventist and he later joined Mount Olive Baptist Church in Merriam, KS where he was a devoted deacon for many years. He was a truck driver for TOX Express, a security guard and custodian. He was well loved by all who crossed his path. In life he had many names: Choke, Uncle, Sly, Uncle Audie, Pops, Daddy Locke and Dad. He was always lending a helping hand to anyone that needed his help and he did not say no to anyone that needed a ride or a dollar. If he had something to share he would open his door- it was open at any time, day or night. He will truly be missed by all. Arthur leaves to mourn his children Arthur Jr. (Samella), Joyce (Arthur), Audrey, Patricia )Ivan), Brenda, Linda, Mary (Carlton), one foster son, Robert Godfrey Womack (Thomas), son-in-law Welford Temus White, sister Imogene Anderson, sister-in-law Delores Locke Graves; 24 grandchildren, 39 great grandchildren, 24 great great grandchildren and many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends of South Park Connection Community.

A visitation will be held from 10:00 to 11:00 AM with services starting at 11:00 AM and a burial to follow at Maple Hill Cemetery. The family wishes to thank their many friends for all of their kind expressions of sympathy during this time. May God bless all.
