Arnold “Dusty” Weston Goldsmith died Wednesday, June 3, 2020 in Sulphur Springs, TX after a brief illness. He was 90 years of age. Dusty was born on August 5, 1929 in Sulphur Springs, TX to John and Neely Turner Goldsmith.
He spent most of his life in the dairy and beef cattle business. Dusty worked and saved until he was able to purchase a home and farm in the early 1950s. He continued working with his cattle until his late 80’s.
He lived in the Weaver community and was married to Wilma Goldsmith for more than 60 years.
Dusty, or Pawpaw as he was lovingly called by his grandchildren and great-grandchildren, was a man of few words. He was a devoted family man.
