Obituary for Arthur "Art" F. Pagnier

Arthur Frank Pagnier
Linwood, MI

Arthur Pagnier, age 90, passed away peacefully on June 7, 2019 at his home with his family by his side after a lengthy battle with dementia. Art is now at peace and reunited with his sons, Jeffrey and Eugene. He was born May 21, 1929 in Clayton Township, MI to the late Edward, Sr. and Alice (Browne) Pagnier. Art served in the U.S. Army during the Korean War from December 1, 1950 – December 9, 1952. On September 11, 1954, he married Mildred (Millie) Bellor to whom he has been married for the past 63 years.

Art worked in the automotive transportation industry in the early years which took him throughout the eastern and central regions of the United States. He later worked for The Dow Chemical Company from which he retired in 1990 after 30 years of service.

Art loved to read and keep abreast of current events. He enjoyed history and a good conversation with anyone who would talk or listen.

Art and Millie had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the U.S. during his early retirement years visiting 49 of the 50 states. Utah the only state they missed. They also enjoyed many ocean cruises with their friends both new and old.

They settled in Brittany Estates in Leesburg, Florida where they have lived during the winter months for the past 24 years.

Art is survived by his wife, Millie and four children, Amy Rezmer (Bob Ellery); Wendy (Kip) Kussro; Greg Pagnier (Penny Foor); and Chris (Wendy) Pagnier. He is also survived by grandchildren: Jeffrey, Jr. (Chantal) Pagnier; Cyle (Melisa) Blohm; Sarahbeth (Chad Barckholtz) Romanik; Jesse (Jenny) Smith; Andrew (Heather) Zastrow; Keaten (Jessica) Dembowske; Kyle (Miranda) Woodruff; Emma Pagnier; Madeline Pagnier; Kyle (Kira) Kussro; Carrie Kussro; 18 great-grandchildren; sister-in-laws Noreen (Leonard) Bellor and Gwen (Edward, Jr) Pagnier; many beloved nieces and nephews; and numerous friends and neighbors in both Michigan and Florida.

He was predeceased by two sons, Jeffrey and Eugene; daughter-in-law, Susan Pagnier; great-grandson, Vaughn Arthur Barckholtz; and very special nephew, Robert Mogg. Also, pre-deceased are his brothers, Harold (Lorraine) Pagnier and Edward, Jr. Pagnier; sister, Elaine (Willard) Mogg; in-laws Clement and Gertrude (Trombley) Bellor; brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws Elda and Eva Bellor; Ethel and Brown Easton; Lloyd and Wilda Bellor; Ernest and Fedora Bellor; Beatrice and Michael Bennett; Elmer and Lourene Bellor; Florence and James Rifenbark; Isabelle and Joseph Knack; Leonard Bellor; Howard Bellor and Bernard Bellor.
