MacArthur Passes Away

Pastor Skip (Maynard) MacArthur went home to his Lord and Saviour, in the early morning hours of May 29, 2023, after a long hard battle with cancer. He had spent the last three and a half months under the care of the wonderful doctors and staff at the Drumheller Hospital. Skip is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Lorraine.
Skip was born in Melfort, Saskatchewan on July 6, 1943, to Frank and Dorothy MacArthur. He did his schooling and graduation in Pleasantdale, Saskatchewan. He started his career at the Naicam Coop and moved to Saskatoon where he was grocery manager at Saskatoon Coop. He married Lorraine Dolezsar in 1969 and continued his career in retail until retirement.

In the 1980’s under the mentorship of Rev. Art Berge, Skip entered the ministry with a position at Lutheran Brethren Church, Morrin, Alberta and he served this church faithfully for 33 years. His last church service was on Christmas Eve, 2022. “What a mighty God we serve.”
