Arthur Nehls

On March 22, 2020, Arthur Nehls said goodbye to his soul mate, best friend, and the love of his life, Jo Jo. They were married 36 years.

Arthur was born in 1939, in Oak Harbor, Ohio, to Arthur and Virgil Nehls. In 1958, Arthur joined the United States Air Force and dedicated 8 years of loyal service to his country. Upon leaving the Air Force, Arthur decided to make Utah his home. He loved to laugh, and always had a smile on his face. Arthur was always willing to help those in need, and he prided himself on being the first to offer a helping hand. His love for life and family will be greatly missed by all that knew him.

Arthur is survived by his wife Johnene (Jo), seven children: Theresa, Patty, Kathy, Loretta, Natalie (Jessie) House, Janel (Chris) Barnett, Travis (Julie) Cevering. He also was blessed with twenty grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren.

In lieu of flowers, a memorial fund account has been established at Wasatch Peaks Credit Union for Arthur Nehls.

Due to the COVID-19 Virus, A private viewing will be held for the family on Monday, March 30, 2020. The viewing will be followed by a graveside service, with full military honors, at the Brigham City Cemetery at 2:00 P.M. The cemetery is located at 300 East 300 South, Brigham City, Utah.

RIP, Art. I worked with Art for several years at Hill AFB, he taught me a lot about aircraft mechanics and, later, a lot about auto mechanics. Condolences to his family and loved ones.

Girls, we are sorry to hear about Butch passing. I enjoyed the time spent together when you made trips to Ohio for reunions and when you visited Grandparents in Michigan. He and I shared contacts when we worked in the Air Force together. Am sure there is a Coors and Pinochle being shared in heaven. Stay in touch with your extended family, Mark and Dawn Nehls (Carol Nehls son)

We all are very sad to learn of Arthurs passing. Im a much younger cousin who really looked up to our other relatives like Butch. He was one who really found happiness in everyday family life. Im sorry we couldnt have become closer as Family. Im still sending your family our love which is formed from God above. Knowing we will have a chance to meet him again when its our turn to go home. Eugene and Shirley Nehls, ps. I was a son of Edwin Nehls.

Your Loving Daughter, Patricia Nehls Moran
