John Arter Obituary, Death-After the unexpected passing of John Arter, who was largely considered to be one of the club’s most prominent members throughout its entire history, the club is in a state of great sadness. John Arter was widely recognized as one of the most influential members of the club. He spent many years working behind the scenes at Solva, where he was a member of the “holy trinity” and held the role of Secretary alongside Ken Jenkins.
In addition to playing for the club on the field, he spent many years working behind the scenes.
Who acted in the capacity of Chairman, and Walter Smith, who acted in the capacity of Treasurer. They were all uncomfortable being in the limelight, but through the work that they did behind the scenes, they were able to make a positive impact on the lives of a great number of people.
All three of them are dependent on their families for financial support. Despite his large stature, John always conducted himself in a manner befitting a gentleman, and this earned him the respect of everyone on the field.When he did speak, everyone would pay attention to what he had to say because he didn’t do it very often. He encouraged good behavior, advocated that everyone try their best, and was of the opinion that success was not the only thing that was important.
While John was working in the background, the team was able to achieve a lot of success, including reaching the finals of competitions and winning honors. This speaks volumes about the influence that John was able to silently exert. Wiltshire Cups, Under 15 runners up and then Champions, Third Division double, Second Division double, West Wales Youth Cup Finalists and Senior Cup Finalists, and West Wales Cups.
Third Division double. John was continuously observed skulking around in the dark. Because he was never interested in being the center of attention, he is not included in very many images, not even those that were shot during his incredibly prosperous era. This is because he never wanted to be the center of attention. I cannot express how grateful I am to you, John, for everything.
On the 17th of April, his funeral will be held at 11.30 in the morning at the Chapel of Rest in St. Davids, and then he will be cremated at Parc Gwyn at 1 in the afternoon. Both events will take place on that day.
