Arthur K. Van Horne III, age 39 of Dickinson, Texas passed away on Friday, February 9, 2018 at his residence.

Arthur was born June 1, 1978 in Webster, Texas and was a Dickinson resident for the last 15 plus years. He graduated from Alvin High School in 1996 and later from The University of Houston — Clear Lake in 2000. He worked for GEO Controls as sub-contractor for NASA as an astronaut scheduler.

Arthur had a passion for adventure; and as a result, he traveled the Texas Hill Country with his daughter, Eva, where they spent many hours hiking trails and enjoying the great outdoors. Arthur also spent many summers surfing the beaches of Galveston and skateboarding through his neighborhood. He also enjoyed watching his two favorite teams — the Houston Astros and The University of Houston Cougars. Go Coogs!

Arthur had a booming, infectious laughter that made everyone smile. He was intelligent, compassionate, and always saw the good in people. He was a true humanitarian. Arthur was a wonderful father, son, brother and will be dearly missed by his family and friends.

Arthur is survived by his daughter, Eva Van Horne; mother, Judy Van Horne; father, A.K. Van Horne Jr. and wife Karen; brother, Todd Van Horne and wife Rebecca; along with numerous other relatives and friends.
