Arthur E. Jarrett
Arthur E. Jarrett, 68, of Pittsburg, NH, died on January 16, 2021, after a brief illness. Born on June 15, 1952 in Stamford, CT, he was a son of the late Arthur S. and Dorothy (Hanson) Jarrett.
Art was a longtime volunteer at Turn of River Fire Department in Stamford, and the local snowmobile club. After his retirement from the City of Stamford, he moved to Pittsburg. Art was an active member in many organizations in the north country, including the Pittsburg Historical Society, the Ridge Runners Snowmobile Club, and the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES). His radio call sign was well known as KA1YVU. He was an avid garage and yard sale visitor and frequently attended amateur radio "hamfests" all over the country, where he made countless friends throughout the region. He used to say, "Sometimes, I can't remember everybody's name, but I've never forgotten the face of someone I've met."
Art is survived by his sister-in-law Penie Jarrett, and nieces Cindy Wettenstein, Christine Cocchia, and Cathy Linask, all from Connecticut. He was predeceased by his brothers William R. Jarrett and Richard Jarrett.
There are no public calling hours. A graveside interment service will be held at a later date in the Lake Cemetery in Pittsburg. Condolences may be offered to the family online by going to http://www.jenkinsnewman.com
