Condolence: My most handsome cousin, then, now and always! It all began with my earliest memory of Artie, standing near the window in the dining room of his Oxford Street house one Thanksgiving afternoon. I was maybe five or six, and he was a handsome man in his twenties, wearing black pants and a white t-shirt. My first crush, right then and there! Our family’s first college graduate and military track star from Villanova. Through the next sixty plus years my feelings never changed. Artie never changed. He remained the handsome, elegant, older man from my youth. Oh, I let Ellie have him and she took good care of him for me, but he will always be my most handsome cousin.

Ellie, Artie, I love you both and your names will forever be remembered as one in my heart.

Condolence: To all of Artie's loved ones,

It is terribly painful to lose someone that you love so matter what stage of life they are in. We must remember to hang on to each other, love each other, and help each other through. I only met Artie and Ellie once, but it was evident to me what loving and caring people that they were. Soooo.....I decided there and then that it would be ok for Kevin to marry my childhood BFF after all! (🎶Wouldn't you want to be a Klepper too? Be a Klepper,
marry Kevin Klepper 🎶 ). I know you will cherish your memories with Artie, during this temporary separation from him.

All my love, Bridget Larson ❤

It was an honor and a blessing to have known Artie, a wonderful and gentle man. He left his mark on all of us. We are all better people because of him.

His soul is in heaven now. God is telling him: "Good job! Welcome home."

Condolence: Dear Aunt Ellie, Kevin and Jeannie,
"Uncle Artie" was such an amazing man and always so wonderful to be around. He had a great poitive spirit and lovely attitude. He is truly an inspiration by the way he managed the later years of his life with grace and determination. I am proud that he was my godfather. I am sorry I will not be able to make it to his funeral on Saturday. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. Sending lots of love, Susan
