Arthur Joseph Pelkey

Arthur J. Pelkey 65, born on May 9th, 1957, in Caribou, ME, passed away from a brief illness at his home on March 9th, 2023 in Albany, Georgia. He was preceded in death by his parents Patrick and Edwina Pelkey.
Along with his family and friends, the joy of his life was being a diesel mechanic since he was young. He finished his career at MCLB where he was extremely proud of the M114 military FUV HMMWV that he built from the ground up after it was said it couldn’t be done. During downtime, he enjoyed camping at various locations.
