Quotes from others about the person
Peter Barris: Arthur J. Marks was a tough taskmaster but had a soft side to him. He was the kind of guy who would beat you up and then put his arm around you. He tended to find himself in the middle of change and if it wasn’t changing, he would initiate it. He was the guy who would always try to mix things up.
