Arthur Magdaleno

November 20, 1946 — July 6, 2019

Former La Habra resident, Arthur H. Magdaleno, 72, passed away at his Texas residence on July 6, 2019.

Arthur was born November 20, 1946. At age 18, he began working for Beckman Industries in La Habra. He then spent the next 50 years working his way up to Master Purchaser for Emerson Electronics. Known for his high productivity and dependability, Arthur was asked to relocate and share his talents with co-workers throughout the country.

Although California and Minnesota were among his long-term residences, he grew especially fond of the Texas lifestyle.

His interests included golf, football, politics, western movies, the guitar and, most of all, entertaining guests at his home. Whether it be hosting pool parties in California, dancing in the Minnesota snow, or indulging in good Texas bar-b-que, Arthur made every guest leave with a smile.

He is survived by his wife of 50 years, Sally, his three children; Trudy, Larry and Paul, and four grandchildren; Vanessa, Abriana, Enzo and Owen.

A viewing will be held on Saturday, July 20, from 9:30 am to 12:00 pm. White-Emerson Mortuary, 13304 Philadelphia Street, Whittier, Ca., 90601.
