Well-loved by Street audiences and his fellow cast members, Arthur's character Jack was quietly written out of the programme only a few weeks after his unexpected passing. Upon the actor's death, fellow cast members paid the following tributes - Violet Carson: "He was a loyal friend and a great professional."; Doris Speed: "The qualities of sweetness and kindness in Jack Walker came in fact from Arthur Leslie himself." and Patricia Phoenix: "We all just loved him. He was the most loved man on both the inside and outside of the studio."
Arthur's only son, the late Tony Broughton, also became an actor and appeared in Coronation Street on several occasions.
In addition to his acting, Arthur also wrote plays, one of which - Welcome Little Stranger - enjoyed some success in repertory companies and was sometimes credited under the name of Arthur S. Broughton.
