Weekends with Arlie
AUTHENTIC COWBOY, NAVY MAN, HUSBAND, BROTHER, UNCLE, AND FRIEND
This is a story of a member of the greatest generation told in his own voice. Arlie Linn Mathews’ love for his wife of 73 years, Trecie, is demonstrated throughout every facet of his life and is well documented here. His love for all his family and friends is indeed remarkable and easy to see in these pages. He was the only man I have known who used all three of his names. Arlie was a real live cowboy in the mountain west state of Colorado and known by this name by most of his family. Matt was a Navy man that served his country well, like most in war he saw more than he is willing to say. Linn was a working man who loved almost every job he held and was known by this moniker by his Arizona family and friends. Born on a homestead to loving parents, he grew up in the Oklahoma panhandle as the Dust Bowl became a phenomenon. His love of horses was something he developed in his early years. His love of basketball on all levels is a rich historical account of playing the game and then watching games from his season tickets for the Wichita State Shockers and then later the Phoenix Suns. Arlie loved the great outdoors, and his tales of hunting and fishing are charming to say the least. You will hear his 102-year-old, gravelly voice as you turn these pages. A story worthy of celebration.
