~ GASTONIA ~ - Steve L. Arrowood, 75, passed away July 20, 2008, at his home after a courageous battle with cancer.

He was born in Gastonia on Oct. 3, 1932, son of the late Lewis William and Maude Hull Arrowood.

Mr. Arrowood grew up in West Gastonia. He was a charter member of East Garrison Baptist Church. Steve was a US Army Korean War Veteran, where he was a machine gun specialist.

For more than 20 years, he was employed with Groves Thread Manufacturing Company and later retired with George Mason Realty after 15 years. Mr. Arrowood loved scouring the flea market for treasures and spent his weekends doing just that. Over the years, he was always there to lend a hand and check in on the elderly shut-ins that he knew were in need. He never met a stranger and had a strong, deep love for his family.

A service to celebrate his life will be held 2 p.m. Wednesday at Greene Funeral Service, South Chapel in Gastonia, officiated by Pastor Pat Arrowood.

A visitation will be held 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the funeral home.

Steve never gave up hope that his son would be located, and was tormented by the loss and the uncertainty of what happened. I hope that a wonderful reunion in heaven, caused all the pain of losing Lewis to cease.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a son, Steve Lewis Arrowood Jr. and brothers, Ray Everett Arrowood, Benjamin 'Ben' Arrowood, and baby brother, Bert David Arrowood , who passed at age 2 years.
