He and Louis left the automobile business in 1929 to form the Chevrolet Brothers Aircraft Company with a new engine design to their credit. Unfortunately they later lost the business to Glenn Martin. Sadly, much of Arthur's subsequent life was beset by a sequence of unhappy occurrences. After he took his life at his home in Louisiana, he was returned to Indianapolis. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
