Mr. Edward Arnold Proveaux, 61, of Walterboro, entered into rest Friday morning, November 5, 2021, at MUSC Medical Center in Charleston.
Born January 6, 1960, in Spartanburg, South Carolina, he was a son of the late Mr. Lee Edward Proveaux and the late Mrs. Florence Ann High Proveaux. He was married to Mrs. Brenda Proveaux. Arnold was a true charmer. The best hugger. A helper in a time of need. A born prankster. His sense of humor made him company you want to keep. His facial expressions spoke volumes alone. To know him count yourself lucky; to be loved by him, count yourself as truly blessed. His church was out on the water catching fish, reading scripture at the kitchen table with his sons, a phone call checking in, a BBQ with friends. He was and will remain, very loved. He would do anything for you. A great guy to know in a pinch. He absolutely, wholeheartedly, loved his family! His wife, daughter, sons; his grandson and granddaughters; his son in law, daughter in law, sisters and brother, nieces and nephews; his friends that were more like family. His church was with you all. His soul is the Lords, as he was saved. He knew Jesus Christ as the Son of God and accepted Him as his Lord and Savior. He worshiped through fellowship. Gatherings filled with love and laughter. Although, a good heartfelt song could bring tears to his eyes, they filled with pride whenever his twin boys sing together. Those same eyes filled with love each time he gazed upon his Grandchildren. He was an expert at tall tales and exaggerated fishing catches, if it was just a tiny embellishment, we will never know. He was an extraordinary human being, Father, Papa, and best friend.
An American patriot. He loved his country and to him…Trump was the best! He certainly could get passionate talking politics. He was Strong. His strength could only come from God alone. He faced death many times. Still, he fought to hold on, because his love for his family tethered him, until his earthly body could handle no more. His suffering is over. Hold on to that. Now the pain is spread between you all. You all need each other. Check in. Help each other to heal. A great love, leaves a great loss. He loved each and every one of you. Find comfort in the knowledge he is with the Almighty Father, now, in peace.

Mynatt (Bob); a brother, Mickey Proveaux (Loretta); his sisters, Tina Lee and Donna Myers (Robert); grandchildren, Sadie Mae Proveaux, Avi Grace Proveaux, Jubal Edward Mynatt and Jessica Mynatt.
