Arthur "Art" Raymond DuFault, passed away September 6, 2019, peacefully at home, with his wife by his side, in McCormick, SC. He was 67.
He is survived by his spouse Carol A. DuFault; son Shaun A. DuFault and wife Vicki; daughter Rachel J. DuFault and husband Robert J. Roche; daughter Kimberly S. Warren and husband Rob; son Benjamin A. DuFault and wife Rachel; thirteen grandchildren; and niece Dawn Depcik and husband Wally.
Art was the son of the late Arthur DuFault and Marjory I. Atwood. His siblings are Robert E. Dufault and wife Deborah; Carolyn J. DiCarlo and husband John; Daniel J. Dufault and wife Denise; Michael J. Atwood and wife Kelley; Christopher W. Atwood; Robert S. Dufault and wife Lori; James A. Dufault and wife Melissa, and Edward P. Dufault. He was predeceased by his sister Linda M. Atwood.
Art's life was rich in his love for his faith, family, and friends. Music filled the rooms of his house and hearts of those surrounding him when he played guitar (by ear) and sang songs that touched the lives of so many. His musical repertoire was vast: from the early days singing worship music with the bus ministry he helped create at Wesley Free Methodist Church in Waukegan, IL, to the sounds of the 50's, 60's, 70's music in his latest "Vintage Art" performances in McCormick, SC, and surrounding areas.
A loving husband, father, grandfather, sibling, uncle, and friend, Art always made time to share his faith, life, and music with others. He lived out his faith in never turning down an opportunity to share the Gospel, gift of music, and other talents with his community and churches he attended. And, he would bring his guitar and music with him wherever he traveled - from Sky Lodge Christian Camp in Montello, WI, to the homes of his family across the country, to the tree lighting in downtown McCormick, SC.
The family will receive friends Thursday evening from 6:00 until 8:00 P.M. at Thomas Poteet & Son.
The funeral service will be Friday, September 13, 2019 at 3:00 P.M. at Freedom Bible Church with Pastor Eric Echols officiating.
