Traudy Naujoks came for her beloved husband Arthur after he peacefully passed away at home on their 55th wed-ding anniversary October 25, 2002.
He was born Dec 19, 1922 in Tilsit, Germany to Arthur O. Naujoks and Ida Loeper. He served brave-ly in the German army, where he was awarded the Iron Cross for his service and integrity on the Russian Front. He later served an LDS mission in Germany for two years. He then met his dearest friend and devoted wife, Traudy Markgraf. They were married Oct 25, 1947 in Chemnitz, Germany and were later sealed in the Salt Lake LDS Temple.
Arthur worked for Radio Rias, the voice of radio free Europe and later immigrated with his family to the United States where they received their citizenship, of which they were proud. Most of his life was spent working for the engineering department at Chevron as a draftsman. He and Traudy loved entertaining in their home and traveling. Art spent his spare time painting with oil and researching his book "The Last Great Secret of the Third Reich." It was recently published and he considered it one of his greatest accomplishments.
He is survived by his son, Mario A. Naujoks; grandchildren, Melissa, Lisa, Tony; sisters, Waltraut, Elly; nieces, nephews, and family members in Germany and the United States.
