Arthur Domingo Zapata, passed away on June 6th, 2023 at the age of 50. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend to many.
Arthur was born in Lubbock on November 17, 1972 to Domingo & Seferina Zapata. He attended local schools and then began his career in painting houses. He took great pride in his work and was known for doing a thorough job working tirelessly to provide for his family.
Arthur had a kind and gentle personality that made him loved by everyone he met. What he enjoyed most in life was spending time with his family and he made sure to take a vacation with them every year.
