June 16, 2013

Arthur Frederick Dobson, Jr. passed away on Tuesday, June 11, 2013, suddenly, following an accident on a biking trip with friends in Croatia, Slovinia and Italy at age 66.

He experienced no pain and died doing what he loved: riding his bike in an extremely beautiful part of the world, surrounded by friends.

Born in North Plainfield, N.J., Art was a loving husband and the greatest dad in the world.

He awaited the birth of his first granddaughter with as much joy as a heart could hold.

He was a beloved brother, uncle and friend to many.
