William “Jim” “Mac” J. MacArthur of Erie, passed away at home on June 2nd 2020. He was born on July 14, 1945, the son of the late Thelma and William E. MacArthur. Jim was a graduate of Strong Vincent High School class of 1964 and Edinboro University. Jim’s first and probably favorite job was working for Koehler Beer; he then went on after graduation to teach for the Erie School District. He was owner of MacArthur’s Country Kitchens. After that he was in sales at Poplar White, and in his retirement he worked providing transportation for Pyramid Health Care.

Jim served in Vietnam from 1969-70 receiving the National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal, Vietnam Campaign Medal, and Bronze Star. He had many hobbies. He loved going to hunting camp, bowling and watching sports, especially the Pirates, Nascar, and the Browns. Golfing was probably his favorite sport to play. Some of his happiest moments were going to the see the Masters with his sons and his hole in one! “Grandpa Jim” was very proud of his six grandchildren and all of their accomplishments as well.

Besides his parents, he is preceded in death by his Mother and Father-in-law, Robert and Jeanne Holmes. He is survived by his daughter, Erin (Samuel) Mehler of Millcreek, as well as two sons, Doug (Andrea) MacArthur of Millcreek and Derek (Jennifer) MacArthur of Erie, his brother Jack (Audrey) MacArthur of Summit. He is also survived by six grandchildren, Madison, Olivia, Maxwell, Dominic, Isabella, and Chandler, along with many nieces and nephews. Finally, he is survived by his previous wife, Patricia MacArthur of Erie.

The family would also like to express gratitude to the late Father Pete, Joe Tarquinio, Frank Hallman, and The Maria House project for all the support they gave to Jim in his time of need. Memorials may be made to The Maria House Project 1218 French St. (#7) Erie, PA 16501 or online at
