Sampson, Arthur Joseph, 76, Louisdale, passed away peacefully on March 29th, 2012, in the Cape Breton Regional Hospital. Born on November 27th, 1935 in Louisdale, he was the eldest son of the late Elias and Rosette Sampson. Arthur was employed in the construction industry most of his working life as an iron worker and welder. An avid outdoors man, he enjoyed all types of recreational fishing and hunting. Arthur was a sports enthusiast and athlete in his early years. He played hockey and baseball and later coached and officiated. He was actively involved in both minor and adult sports associations in Richmond County and was acknowledged for his participation and support of youth sports in the area during the 1970's. He refereed hockey and umpired baseball for many years in Richmond County and throughout Nova Scotia. He was Umpire and Chief for the Nova Scotia Baseball Association in the 80"s and 90"s and officiated in several Canada Games competitions. After receiving a successful kidney transplant in 1990, he became an passionate supporter of the Kidney Foundation of Canada an organization which he attributed his many years of good health. Arthur is survived by his wife of 52 years, Lorraine, daughter, Debbie (Larry Samson), Edmonton, Alberta, sons, Dan (Heather), Halifax and Robert (Traci), Toronto, sister, Emily (Brain) Stockall, Halifax, brothers, Bobby (Mary Agnes) and Howard (Vivian), both of Louisdale.

Arthur's family would like to thank the staff of the Cape Breton Regional Hospital ICU and Palliative Care Unit for their care and compassion.

Condolence From: Andrew Downs, Umpire, Baseball Nova Scotia
I was taken back when I heard the news of Art's passing. I had the good fortune of meeting Art at a umpires clinic in 2001. He had a positive and immediate impact on the baseball community. It was always great to see Art when he would be in town watching the NSSBL playoffs. I would joke with him asking who he would be cheering for tonight. His face would light up and say..."the third team" (The umpires) Rest in Peace Art.
