Arthur A. Toran

May 25, 1921-March 6, 2013

GRAYVILLE, Ill. — Arthur Abraham Toran, age 91, of Longview, Texas, passed away March 6, 2013. He was born May 25, 1921, in Grayville, Ill., to the parentage of Elvin and Julia (Buckner) Toran, who preceded him in death. He was the second child of eight children. He received his formal education in the Grayville (Illinois) School System. Arthur started working at the age of 17 in the coal mines of Caramel, Ill. (south of Harrisburg). He worked there until an injury forced him to leave the industry.

In 1951, he married Wilma Boyd, who preceded him to glory in 1995. To this union, three sons and one daughter were born. One son, Salinas LaVern Toran preceded him in death in 1989. After recovering from his injury in the mines, Arthur went on to work for the railroad near Chicago, then moved on to Harrisburg, Ill., where he worked for New York Central Railroad for 33 years until retiring in 1982.

Arthur united with the Calvary Baptist Church, under the pastorage of the Rev. Morris Blade, where he served as a deacon until his health began to fail him. Due to his decline in health, Arthur was relocated to Longview, by his children in March 2009. He peacefully entered eternal rest on March 6, 2013.

He joins his parents, Elvin and Julia Toran; sisters, Elvine, Theresa, Edna, Mamie, Edith, and Lola; and a brother, William.

Arthur leaves to mourn his passing two daughters, Monique (Gregory) Waddleton of Dallas, and Lisa Kirkendoll of Jacksonville, N.C.; two sons, Malcolm (Irritha) Toran of Longview, and Milton (Lisa) Toran of Arlington, Texas; 20 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

A funeral service will be held Saturday, March 16, 2013, at 1 p.m., CDT at Stendeback Family Funeral Home, in Carmi. Visitation will be from 9 a.m. until the time of service. Pastor Keith Moore will officiate the service. Burial will take place in Oak Grove Cemetery, in Grayville. Condolences may be left at:
