Arthur S. Ferreri passed away suddenly on Tuesday morning, August 20 at Riverview Hospital near his home in Red Bank after a lengthy illness. Arthur was 70 years old.
Arthur was born in New York City, and graduated from Eastern Military Academy in Huntington, Long Island. He went on to attended Baruch College in New York, worked for many years at the advertising agency Young & Rubicam, and retired after a lengthy employment at Conde Naste Publications.
Arthur loved swimming, warm summer days at the New Jersey shore, and everything else that coastal living had to offer. He also enjoyed the relaxation of woodworking in his basement workshop, and was always up to the challenge of a good New York Times crossword puzzle.
Arthur was proud of his military service with the 101st Airborne Division of the U.S. Army, which included time spent in Vietnam, and culminated with an Honorable Discharge in September of 1971.
He was predeceased by his mother, Sadie Ferreri; and his father, Arthur Angelo Ferreri. Arthur is survived by Suzanne Ferreri, his wife of 45 years. He is also survived by his son, Arthur, and daughter-in-law, Myra, and his three beloved grandchildren, Jake, Lucas and Cole. Arthur is also survived by his sister, Laura Mero, and his niece Lisa, her husband Mario, and their family, all of whom currently reside in Naples, Fla. Arthur was surrounded by his cadre of wonderful friends from South Street in Red Bank, his place of residence since 1981.
Visitation was held at the Thompson Memorial Home, Red Bank, on Tuesday, August 25. A prayer service took place on Wednesday, August 26 also at the Thompson Memorial Home. The burial service immediately followed at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Middletown.
