Middleton was born in Arkansas. He was a pastor and minister to various churches in Alabama, and even after he retired, he loved the opportunity to fill in for other pastors as needed. A member of Samaria Baptist Church who, even at the age of 92, was willing to teach a class, lead singing, or serve in any position God opened a door for him.
He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 72 years, Bertha Middleton; and parents, Charlie Hershal Middleton and Edna Siler Middleton.
He is survived by sons, Arthur Lee Middleton Jr. (Carol) of Fairhope, Ala., and Billy Joe Middleton of Jasper; grandchildren, Mendy Boyd, Matthew Middleton, and John Mark Middleton; eight great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, and friends.
In lieu of flowers, the family request donations be made to Samaria Baptist Church, P.O. Box 1365, Jasper, Al 35502.
