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

To The Jarrett Families;

I am sorry to hear of Art passing. I worked with him at the SPD, he was mostly quiet, but had a great sense of humor, and he seemed to know how to repair anything. Art would do a favor for anybody who asked.
Please accept my deepest sympathy.

I've known Artie since the early 70's, through Turn of River Fire Department.
There was not a mean bone in his body, always kind and gentle. He was Superintendent of Communications for the Department for years, taking care of our portable radios and pagers.
I remember going camping in Pittsburg with a crew of guy's and Artie was always there, whether we were dirt bike riding in the summer or snowmobiling on the lakes and trails in the winter.
I used to be jealous and would tease him that he started working for the City after I did and retired from the City before me!
Artie would stop at the firehouse oçcasionaly when he was passing through and we would always have a pleasant conversation.

A funny story, my cousin and her husband told me they met a friend of mine. I was like, OK, who. They said they were in the mountains snowmobiling and stoped at a gas station for fuel. While fueling their vehicle somebody struck up a conversation with them after noticing their CT license plate. One thing led to another, and in small talk and he said he used to live in Stamford, and my cousin said she has a cousin who lives there and is a fireman there. In minutes they realize they both knew me, and it was Artie that had struck up a conversation with them.
When they relayed the story to me, I thought how Artie had not changed in all the years I knew him.
I want to wish you all my sincerest condolences. I have truly lost a friend, and you have lost a loving member of your family.
