Born on Nov. 24, 1923, in Willimantic, Conn., he was the fourth of eight children of Louis and Rose Haddad. He grew up during the Depression the effects of which could be gleaned from conversation. Arthur was a celebrated high school athlete in Connecticut and remained physically fit and able his whole life. College basketball remained a lifelong passion. He proudly served in the U.S. Army during World War II seeing combat in North Africa, Sicily, Normandy (Omaha Beach), and the Hurtgen Forest (Battle of the Bulge).

Arthur was a life member of the Mount Tabor Lodge A.F. & AM based in Boston, Mass. His loves were his family, vegetable gardens, and pets in no particular order. He is survived by his two sons: Nicholas (Carrie) Haddad of Hudson, N.Y., and Randolph (Colleen) Haddad of Red Hook, N.Y.; his loving grandchildren, Jackson, Henry, Adrian, Hannah, and Abigail; his sisters; Florence Modi, and Mildred Wilcox; along with countless extended family, colleagues and friends. In addition to his wife, his son, Christian George Haddad, and several siblings predeceased him. And a Noah’s Ark full of beloved dogs and cats. A memorial service will be held at a date to be announced.
