It's extremely unlikely that anyone who knows him will just happen to see your post here.

Unless you know more about him to narrow down the search, there's no hope of contacting anyone who has him on their GR tree, or of knowing if he died or not.

You don't know if he has actually died, and if so where in the world that might have been.
Dozens of men named Arthur Williams (some with middle names) died in England and Wales alone, 1999 +/-2.

In "Search all member trees" (under "Search" at top right of this page) there are 86 results for men named Arthur Williams, born in the UK (assuming he was born here) .

Someone named Paul [Rutherford] has an Arthur Williams in his tree, born 1949 in the UK.
But that's very vague, and it's such a common name, it would be a one in a million chance if that happened to be the man you're interested in.

You can click on "Find out more" beside that search result and send Paul a message, just in case - but don't hold your breath.

Sorry, Al, but I think you need to be more careful when posting info about people on this insecure site

Of the many men named Arthur Williams who died in England/Wales 1999+/-2,
only three would have been in their 70's now if they hadn't died -

One with no middle name, born 31 March 1943 ,died in Wrexham in 1999.
One with middle name Fon, born 3 Aug 1945 (possibly in Anglesey), died Liverpool 2001.
One with middle name John, born 25 March 1944 (possibly in Wallasey) , died Wallasey 1997.

However, that's no help re whether or not "your" Arthur died or not if you don't know when he was born or whether he had a middle name or not.
