  1. candleSo Sorry to see Uncle Arthur Go! We love him so much and are so sad and pray for him today and always! Great, Loving Human Being that was so caring and was wonderful to every person he knew. Condolences to the entire family. Saying he will be missed is an understatement. Let HIM REST IN PEACE.

  2. Uncle Artie is a wonderful uncle and a great man. He and my dad have so many fun memories from a lifetime of friendship because Uncle Artie is also a loyal friend. We miss Uncle Artie yet we have faith that we will see each other again. Loving sympathies to Aunt Terry, Denise, Donna, Steven, and the entire family Uncle Artie loves so much.

  3. God bless you Arthur and Terri, and all of the Maddaloni family. Paula and I remember Arthur as a kind and happy man, always eager to smile. We miss him so much.

  4. First, to friend’s and family, my condolences for your loss. In writing this, I just wanted you to know there are thousands of Westbury students who, now years later, wish they could step back in time to thank their many teachers for all that they did. Mr. Maddaloni is surely often in the thoughts of the many. He is certainly in mine.

    I was a lucky teenager to be assigned to Mr. Maddaloni’s car for driver’s education back in the summer 1981. He had such a great personality, and time spent learning anything was never as fun.

    I remember another young man was at the wheel one day, when we came to a stop sign. Mr. Maddaloni had just started to tell a tale of his recent experience behind the wheel with the hopes we could learn from the event.

    The story was quite interesting, and the telling it lasted a couple minutes while the driver held his position at the stop sign. Back then, there wasn’t nearly the traffic there is today.

    On concluding the story, he turned to the student driver and quipped “What are you going to do, take a picture? Let’s go!” We all laughed for a long couple minutes.

    I remember when we all said goodbye a couple weeks later. He said he had enjoyed our time together with such sincerity, I knew he had also grown into the group as much as we had. I think everyone in the car felt a sadness that day knowing this was a once-in-a-lifetime event that had been especially fun. We all bonded in that car, and 40 years later, it seems like yesterday. While we all contributed, it was Mr. Maddaloni that made it especially memorable.

    I never had him as a regular teacher, but some of my family did. His name comes up from time to time, always with a thankfulness for his skills as a teacher.

    This great man may have moved on, but he will never be forgotten.

  5. Oh, I am sorry to hear about the passing of Mr. Maddaloni, one of my favorite teachers at Westbury HS and a very nice man. He taught me French for 2 years and he was a significant part of the inspiration for my pursuit of linguistic studies.
    He’d be happy to know that I’ve retained much of my French after all these years! Que Dieu soit avec vous, Monsieur Maddaloni!

  6. Mr. Maddaloni was my second year French teacher at the Prep… and I hated French, probably because of my first year French teacher. By the end of second year I loved French and Mr. Maddaloni so much, I took it for a third year. After graduation he left St. Francis for Westbury I went with several other of his former students to visit him there and with a gift for his new-born daughter. That’s how much we all loved him. He was an inspiration to me and an example and I became a teacher. Over the years when I traveled I dropped him postcards written in my far from perfect French to tell him how much I appreciated having him in my life. I am so sad by his passing, that I didn’t know and that I wasn’t able to pay my last respects in person. Thank you, Mr. Maddaloni. You made a difference in so many lives. You will be missed. And by the way, my daughter became a French teacher… and she is so much better than her old man. My sincere condolences to the Maddaloni family.
