Arthur William Draut, son of William B. Draut and Nellie Barnes Draut was born May 21, 1913. His siblings were Robert Edward Draut and Florence Inez Draut. All lived and died in Middletown, Ohio. Arthur grew up on 14th Street and learned to ice skate on the nearby Woodside Cemetery pond. He is buried where he played with his siblings and friends. After marriage to Estelle Lowe (Feb, 1934) he designed and helped to build the steel house at 900 Stanley St. He and his brother Bob shot rabbits in the woods to feed their families during the Great Depression. Arthur's native intelligence, inquisitiveness, and natural ability as a mechanic helped him to create a thriving radio and TV repair business while working full time as an electrician at Armco Steel. He had exceptional integrity. He always saw to it that his work was done correctly.
Working two jobs, he paid college tuition for his four children, three of whom earned graduate degrees as well. Arthur was a man of few words, seldom smiled, but really laughed at a good joke. Losing his 21 year old son Tim was a great blow to him. Art was known as "Zeke" to his immediate family. He owned a series of small airplanes and taught his son Arthur Jr. to fly.
