A Tribute To Arthur Thompson
On November 22, 2004 Archbishop Bob Guffey of Texas wrote in an e-mail
Arthur was in High School when I first met him, he was friends with another guy I knew who was associated with us for awhile. I met Arthur and it was instant friendship for us. I was of course quite a bit older than him but that meant nothing - we were like brothers.
He was a musician and could have been a professional. Country musician Gene Watson is his uncle and offered to help him get a start in the music business but Arthur refused saying Gene's and his music were too different for it to successfully work out.
Arthur and David Holoman are two of the co-founders of the CSP. David died about a year before Arthur.
