It is known that Arth Kendal and Arthur Kendall are the same person. Serious clerical error on his death being reported, could be the unique way our father wrote cursive. Unknown as to why he got his SSN card in NY, we just don't know. Dad was a foster child during the Great Depression. He was a farm hand, head cook at UMass Amherst and a cabbie. Loved to read - Science Fiction and mysteries. He loved fishing. He has fished Lake Champlain and every inch of the Quabbin Reservoir. When I was young, he usually fished with a wooden block, a long piece of elastic band, a railroad spike and hooks. He loved his family and any occasion that involved family, we were at it. We spent a lot of time at my uncles (Our mother's brothers) homes when we were kids. As a matter of fact, I recently learned that my father and our Uncle Ralph were friends and that is how our parents met😊❤️. I dimly remember holidays at our uncles homes. Our entire family loved Thanksgiving & Christmas together, always fun & magical ❤️. Family picnics at Groff Park, Memorial Day picnics at a swimming pool park on Triangle St. A Pittsley family reunion in New Bedford (Mom was a Pittsley).

"he usually fished with a wooden block, a long piece of elastic band, a railroad spike and hooks" my grandfather taught me something similar! Arth sounds like a wonderful man. I hope you have a photo of him to share?

Funny. I was trying to do the same for my grandpa! I guess it just wasn't a 'photo-worthy' opportunity back then :)

In 1928, in the year that Arth Kendal was born, Mickie Mouse was born! He first appeared in Disney's Steamboat Willie, along with Minnie. Although they were in two previous shorts, this was the first to be distributed. Steamboat Willie took advantage of the new technology and was a "talkie" - music was coordinated with the animation. It became the most popular cartoon of its day.

In 1954, at the age of 26 years old, Arthur was alive when from April 22 through June 17th, the Army v. McCarthy hearings were held. The U.S. Army accused Roy Cohn (chief counsel to Senator McCarthy and later trusted mentor of Donald Trump) of blackmail. McCarthy and Cohn accused the U.S. Army of harboring communists. The Army allegations were found to be true. The U.S. Senate later censured McCarthy.

In 1969, when he was 41 years old, on July 20th, the first men walked on the moon. Apollo 11 astronauts Neil A. Armstrong and Edwin E. Aldrin Jr. both walked on the moon but it was Armstrong who first stepped on the moon. They fulfilled the promise of President Kennedy's commitment in 1961 to put a man on the moon before the end of the decade.

In 1974, by the time he was 46 years old, on July 30th, the House Judiciary Committee adopted three articles of impeachment against President Nixon. He was charged with obstruction of justice, failure to uphold laws, and the refusal to produce material subpoenaed by the committee. In order to avoid impeachment, Richard M. Nixon announced that he would resign on August 8th, the first President to do so.

In 1985, when he was 57 years old, on March 7th, the song "We Are the World" was released as a charity effort to alleviate the African famine. The song was written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie, and produced by Quincy Jones. They were joined by 37 other famous singers in the recording studio and a phenomena had begun
