      From a tribute book made about David P. Black and his family by his children in 1978:
           "Archie Raymond Black was born January 5, 1903, in Colonia Pacheco, Chihuahua, Mexico.  He was baptized January 5, 1911, and advanced through the priesthood, being ordained an Elder November 24, 1935, and later a High Priest, July 19, 1953.
           When Arch was nine years old, his parents, having come out of Mexico with the Saints, settled in Blanding and there he received his early education.  During his high school years, he moved to Salt Lake where he lived with and worked for his uncle, Will Kartchner.  He milked twelve cows night and morning during this time as well as taking care of other chores.  After high school, Arch returned to Blanding and worked with his father on road construction jobs.
           During a road building contract at Taos, New Mexico, Arch met Florence (Doll) Simmons and they were married in Ranchos de Taos on August 25, 1928.  This marriage was later sealed in the Salt Lake Temple on March 9, 1936.  After that road contract was completed, Arch and his wife went to Colorado Springs to live.  It was during the great depression and work was hard to find.  However, Arch was able to find jobs and support his family there for ten years - first as a dairy hand, then as a truck driver, and later as a diesel equipment mechanic.  During this time, four daughters were born to bless their home.
           In 1937, Arch moved his family to Salt Lake, where he lived out the remainder of his life.  Two sons were born during the family's early years in Salt Lake.  The youngest served an L.D.S. mission to the Indians in New Mexico and Arizona.
           Arch had his own dairy business for a time, but World War II restricted gasoline to such an extent he gave that up and went to work at the Arms Plant as a machine maintenance specialist.  After the war, Arch operated his own service station for several years, then went to work for Lang Equipment Company as a heavy duty mechanic.  After that company went out of business, Arch went to work for Salt Lake County in the Road Equipment Division.  He retired at age 68 from this employment.
           Shortly thereafter, Arch enrolled in a furniture upholstery class.  He found this activity so intriguing, that he enrolled in another class at the Utah Trade Technical Institute and took three quarters of instruction there.  His instructor was so impressed with Arch's natural talent and the excellence of his work that he recommended him to Granite School District when they needed an instructor for their community school.  Arch accepted the position and within a year, this class was the most popular in the community school program and there soon was a waiting list for enrollment.  Arch continued in this teaching position the remainder of his life.
           Arch passed away July 1, 1975, while on vacation at the home of a daughter in San Luis Obispo, California.  At that time, his family numbered 42, including children, grandchildren, great-grand-children, and inlaws.
           Arch always considered it a miracle that God brought Florence into his life.  From such divergent backgrounds; religion, family background, economic, and educational differences, they met and each one knew they were meant for each other.
           There were many faith promoting incidents in Arch's life, none of which drastically changed his life or beliefs, but they all strengthened his faith and gratitude for his blessings.  Each child was a miracle, beautiful and perfect.  Though there were times when unemployment, illness, fire, and flood left the family quite destitute, Arch's faith in God never waivered.
           Arch had a great faith that somehow, if he worked hard and was faithful to his beliefs, he and his family would survive and prosper.  This trait was inherited from his father who taught Arch to give an honest day's work for a day's pay, to be dependable and never betray a trust.
           From his mother, Arch inherited humility and gratitude for all blessings, great and small.  He found happiness in simple pleasures.  He also inherited an understnding and sympathetic nature that endeared him to his friends and associates.  He had a deep love for his family and their health and happiness were his first concern.  Arch had a strong testimony of the gospel and had no fear for the future."
