Richard Herbert Artus, born May 7, 1961, passed from this earth Saturday, April 19 after battling cancer for almost two years.

He is survived by the love of his life and devoted caregiver, Debra Kay Sjoberg, her daughter Skylar Josephine White and granddaughter Norelle Rose White; his two beautiful, gifted children, daughter Samantha Lynn Artus (13) and Carson Patrick Artus (12); his mother and stepfather Dixie and Richard Doherty, his brother John and his wife Maria, his sister Sandy and her two daughters; and extended family.

His father Herbert passed away when Rick was in his late teens. He was happiest when with family, friends and his incredible cars. Rick's beautiful smile will never be forgotten.

A celebration of his life will be held at the American Legion on Stock Island, Thursday, May 8, 2014 from 5 to 6:30 p.m. We would also like to thank the wonderful people at 21st Century Oncology and many others in the local and Miami healthcare communities, including Hospice at the end. God bless.
