He was loved by many nieces, nephews and grand-nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his siblings, Robert (late Marguerite), Rosemary (late Arthur) Schneider, Gerard (late Rosemary), Collette Williams and Vincent Sr. (late Kathryn Ann). 

A funeral Mass was celebrated June 2 at St. Francis Xavier Church, followed by interment at Queen of Heaven Cemetery, Hillside. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials are appreciated to Catholic Charities or a charity of your choice in Arthur’s memory.
