Arthur spent many years living in Southern California before moving to Seaside in 1990 and starting Weiss’ Paradise Suites and Vacation Rentals. He also had a home in Portland, Ore., at the Oregon Yacht Club.

His favorite hobby was fishing, and he enjoyed going out on the river with friends or just throwing a line out in front of his floating home.

He enjoyed traveling, and he spent a great deal of time vacationing in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. He was always looking forward to fishing with his dear friend, Jose.

Arthur loved music, especially country western. He enjoyed singing Hank Williams songs and loved to perform “gigs” with his lifelong friend, Bob.
