Arthur Roger McGrew, husband, father, papa and pastor was born January
19, 1927 in Nardin, OK, a small town near Blackwell, where he grew up
and attended HS.
He received his BS at Oklahoma City University and his Masters of Divinity
at Southern Methodist University. He served many churches in the Methodist
Conference until his retirement as Associate Pastor at Boston Avenue in 1992.
Always a man who enjoyed laughter and pranks, He once told the membership
committee they needed to do a better job because he was burying members
faster than they were bringing them in.
As a farm boy he grew up loving to hunt and fish and started enjoying golf
after the service. He was a man who was happy with staying close to home
and simple pleasures, but his wife Joan was a traveler extraordinaire
so at her coaxing (orders) he got to see a lot of the world and has walked
on every continent, he never once complained.
He is survived by two sons, Steve and Jeff McGrew who live in Tulsa. 4
grandchildren, Brian McGrew, Meggan McGrew, Kayla Than and Miranda Sellers
and 4 Great grandchildren, Elana, Colin, Rex, Jace and Cannon.
