It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Arthur Rumble on April 22, 2023 at York Care Centre. Born on July, 22, 1945, he was the son of the late Roy and Edith (McQuinn) Rumble, and the beloved spouse of Rowena (Spencer) Rumble.
He will be greatly missed by his spouse, Rowena; children Dave Rumble (Katherine), and Lisa Rumble (Keith); grandchildren, Chantelle Reale (Domanic), Emily Rumble, Brayden Rumble, Makayla Rumble, and Marley MacLaggan (Steven); great grandchildren Frankie, Kashton, Michael, and Jacob; sisters, Elaine MacDonald, and Cathy Barclay (Steve); brothers, Jimmy Rumble (the late Kim), and Glen Rumble (Angie), as well as several nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
In addition to his parents, Arthur was predeceased by his son, Dana Rumble (Kayla), and brother, Darrell Rumble (Diane).
Arthur was a dedicated, hard worker, who was an entrepreneur. In the late 60’s, Arthur and his father started a family paving company. Together they operated this company for many years. He also worked in Ontario for the Canadian Train Mobile, and eventually started a salvage car dealer business. Being an avid woodsman, Arthur advocated for the industry and worked many years in it as well. He loved being with nature, and spending time outdoors, and with his cherished family. He was known as a generous and giving person, who would always be there for those in need, and help in any way he could, even if that meant giving them the shirt off his back. Family meant everything to Arthur and his legacy will live on with his family.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. Interment will take place in the Penniac Baptist Cemetery at a later date. For those who wish, memorial donations in Arthur’s memory may be made to the Alzheimer Society - Lewy Body Dementia, or Heart and Stroke Foundation.
