Arthur Clayton McCune, of Pittsfield, Pa, went to be with his Savior on Sunday, May 23rd, 2021.

He was born August 24th, 1948. Growing up in Grand Valley, he attended Titusville schools and graduated from Titusville High School in 1966. He graduated from Penn State University. He taught shop and mechanical drafting at Tidioute High School and later at Warren County Christian School. After leaving teaching, he worked at Torpedo Wire and Strip, and then Ellwood Crankshaft.

Art loved people. He especially loved spending time with his family. His grandchildren remember four wheeler rides and being pulled on the sled behind the wheeler in the winter. He made a special toboggan to pull all 7 of the grandkids at once. Nieces and nephews remember his teasing and his rescuing them from ditches, and special water battles. Art was a self-proclaimed member of the Smokey Mountain Boys, mostly consisting of his brother-in-laws. His hobby was woodworking. His house and children’s houses are filled with these labors of love. Art loved to volunteer at his home church of Pittsfield Otterbein, Love Inc, and Second Harvest because he knew that was a way to show the love of Christ to the community.

Art married Bonnie Hannah on June 10th, 1972, whom survives him. Art was a loving husband, father, Papa, uncle, brother, brother-in-law, and friend. Also surviving are his daughter, Angie (Mike) Bojaczko of Pittsfield; his son, Jake (Jaime) McCune of Youngsville; his grandchildren, Gabrielle Bojaczko, Xavier Mowrey, Julia Bojaczko, Caden McCune, Mikey Bojaczko, Wyatt McCune, and Jonathan Bojaczko; many sister-in-laws, brother-in-laws, nieces, nephews, and friends, Kip Smith and Ted Johnson.

Arthur was preceded in death by his father Fred McCune in 1954, his mother Julia Sowles in May, 2002, his brothers Raymond McCune and Dean McCune, his sisters Edeth McClellan and Thelma Patteson, in-laws, Clyde and Bernice Hannah, Mike Hannah, Shannon Hannah, Sandra Morrison, nephew Bruce Michael Bean, niece Jacqueline Ann Check,2 brother-in-laws, Milton Check and Cliff Eastman, in-law and friend Jim Upton, and friend Bernie Switzer.

Family and friends are invited to call on Wednesday, May 26, at the Otterbein United Methodist Church, 258 Dalrymple Street, Pittsfield, Pa 16340, from 4-7pm. A funeral service will be held there on Thursday at 11am with the Rev. Nate Fugate, pastor, assisted by Josh Baker. Burial will take place at St. Jacqueline Cemetery at a later date.

Dear Bonnie & Family <3 Prayers of comfort for your family. Art was "da man". From the moment he shared with Chayse about his leg being like Chayse's, I thought he is a man of God. Chayse may not remember, but I will. I'm so thankful for his friendship and his knowledge. You were always there for him.
