---- — SAN ANGELO, Texas – Kenneth J. Arbuckle, formerly of Carlton Road, Mill Creek Township (Sandy Lake), passed away of natural causes Sunday (1-13-13) in San Angelo. He was 90.

Born May 8, 1922, in Rouseville, Venango County, Mr. Arbuckle was a son of Daniel J. and Belva Mae Cochran Arbuckle.

For more than 30 years, he served as a caretaker for New Lebanon Cemetery, Mill Creek Township.

He was a decorated World War II Army veteran, a recipient of four Bronze Stars who took part in four major campaigns. He hauled military personnel and supplies by truck into combat zones on the front lines, many times under blackout conditions over all types of terrain.

He is survived by: his wife, the former Ruth E. Ebbert, whom he married Sept. 13, 1947, and who resides in San Angelo; two daughters, Linda Miller and her husband Steven, Rocky Face, Ga.; and Darlene Hamilton and her husband Michael, Mertzon, Texas; two sons, Larry R.
