Obituary

Arthur Leo Degrenia was born on April 28, 1945 and passed away on September 7, 2023.

He moved to Ocala, FL in 2016 after spending seven years living on the road in a motorhome.  In that time he completed one of the items on his bucket list, he got to visit Oregon.  He was retired from the US Air Force.  In his twenty plus years he was able to visit every state but Oregon and 44 countries.

He is survived by his loving wife, Vicki, 3 daughters; Tina and husband Ric, Tracey and husband Robert, and Shanon and husband Jeff.  He has 12 grandchildren; Jessica, Jennifer, Austin, Danielle, Ryan, Kaylee, Destiny, Zach, Caden, Katie, Zach, and Ashley.  He has 6 great grandchildren; Logan, Nolan, Karli, Audrey, Teagan, and Tate.  One surviving sibling, his sister Irene and her husband Ernie, and many wonderful nieces and nephews.

Arthur was a very generous and loving man.

One of the things Art enjoyed was cooking.  He loved a house full of guests and especially family.  Family meant everything to him.  He loved his three girls and enjoyed watching his grandchildren growing up to become responsible and loving adults.  He also loved this country and was a true patriot.

A Memorial Service was held on Friday, September 15, 2023, 2:00pm at the Baldwin Brothers Timber Ridge location .

Baldwin Brothers Funeral and Cremation Society is honored to be handling arrangements.

    Art was the perfect example of how a true Father is a Father by choice, not by blood. One of the greatest men I’ve ever known and a father-in-law that will truly be missed!!!

    Pepe picking on me for how I flip my hair before pictures. Always will be a favorite next to the one of Pepe, Meme and I in 2013 where she is the one making fun at me for this. ❤️

    What a true joy it's been to have Pepe as a grandfather and to have him here to be a great grandfather to my boys. He will be missed us so much.
