Arturo "Art" Guerra


March 2, 1955 ~ July 31, 2012


Arturo “Art” Guerra, loving husband, dad, grandpa, brother, tio, “uncle” and friend has lost his battle after 8 years with liver disease; on July 31, 2012, at his home in Caldwell, Kansas at the age of 57.


Art was 1 of 11 children born to Sebriano and Celia Guerra on March 2, 1955 in Phoenix, Arizona.


In 1988, Art asked the love of his life, Bonnie, to marry him. Of course, she said yes! On July 6, 1990, Art and Bonnie were united in marriage in Caldwell, Kansas. In 2010 they had a renewal ceremony celebrating 20 years of marriage.


Art’s favorite past times were first and foremost his wife and kids. He enjoyed watching his kids play sports, shooting his guns with his kids (even his lil girl),making and shooting his bows, and loved sitting at the lake fishing and camping. Woodworking was his passion; he just loved life period.


Survivors include his wife, Bonnie; children, David and his wife Ashley of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Arturo Jr. of Bakersfield, California, Tommy, Margarita and Weigand all of Caldwell, Kansas; mother-in-law Sharon Benke; siblings; Lupe, Mondo, Jesus, Menerva, Celia, Oralia, Tina and Margie; in-laws, Barbara, Brenda and Robert, and numerous nieces, nephews and friends.


He was preceded in death by his parents, unborn child, brothers; Ruben and Albert, niece Cynthia and nephew Roland.


Arturo will be missed by all that knew him.


Funeral services will be held 9:00 a.m. Saturday, August 4, 2012 at the Schaeffer Mortuary Chapel, Caldwell, Kansas.


In lieu of flowers, memorials may be given in care of Impact Bank, to the Art Guerra Memorial Fund to help with expenses.

"Friendship isn't seen with the eyes, it's felt with the heart." That is the saying on a wooden wall hanging that Art made and that we have enjoyed for years. Art always had a smile and a cheerful "hello" for those he met. We extend our sympathy to you, Bonnie, and to all of the family. May good memories and knowing that Art is no longer suffering help give you strength. May God be with you all.
