Louis Dale Ard, 72, of Pine Bluff, Arkansas went to be with our Heavenly Father on April 1, 2017. He was born on August 12, 1944, to Louis Fred Ard and Bessie Smith Ard.
Louis worked as an appliance service technician for over 25 years, before retiring in 1999.
Louis loved the simple things in life such as cooking, hunting, fishing, telling stories, and supervising everyone’s tasks while reminding them of his willingness to lend a hand at anytime.
Louis never met a stranger. He could always put a smile on your face and wrap you up with his strong embrace. Even though he was born and raised in Arkansas, his heart was bigger than Texas.
He was preceded in death by his mother (Bessie), father (Louis), and brother, Charles (Chuck) Ard.
Louis left behind for now his beautiful daughter, who he called “Punkin” Carrie Ard-Cobb (Robert Woodward); three cherished granddaughters, Alannah Cobb (Timothy Sims), Kiersten Cobb, and Aliya Cobb; one step granddaughter, Lillian Woodward; two sisters, Claudette Guenther, Wanda Pearce, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
A gathering of remembrance to celebrate his life will be held on April 22, 2017 (2-4pm) at Providence Baptist Church in Pine Bluff, Arkansas.
Cremation arrangements have been entrusted to A Natural State Funeral Service 2620 West Main Street, Jacksonville, Arkansas, 72076. 501-982-3400
