Arvil served 30 years working for the state of Tennessee from where he retired.  His long career and retirement from the state were among his proudest accomplishments. Arivl loved the outdoors and spent a great deal of time during his younger days roaming the trails of New River.  He could frequently be seen with his 'medicine' in hand, yes even when driving 4-wheelers. Arivl fiercely loved his son, Wayne (Red Dog), and was devastated by his loss a few short months ago.  Their connection was special and was one that both treasured dearly. Special thanks to Diveriscare of Oak Ridge for giving such wonderful care to Arvil in his final months of life, and to Covenant Hospice working alongside Diveriscare in Arvil's final weeks.
