Arthur Emil Dee, age 87 of Westfield, passed away peacefully on Sunday evening, December 8th, 2019, at home surrounded by his loving family. Arthur was born on January 20, 1932 in rural Harrisville. He graduated from Westfield High School and received his post-secondary degree from Oshkosh Business College.

Arthur was a person of great faith, and sincerely lived that faith through service to his loving Lord and everyone around him. He was active in many groups within the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod, the Coloma community, and the banking organization –and was always ready with a big smile, a hug, or a firm handshake.
