Arthur Kenneth Pipitone, 73 of Colts Neck, passed away Tuesday, September 24th at Bayshore Community Hospital.
Arthur was born and raised in Jersey City, but his family had moved to Weehawken where he finished high school. Following high school, Arthur was drafted into the Army and was deployed to Germany where he spent 2 years before being honorably discharged. After the Army, Arthur enrolled into Rutgers University where he would spend 2 years before he decided to take a chance and took a job on Wall Street where he would work his way through the ranks to have a successful 35-year career.
Arthur met the love of his life one night out at the College Club in Union City and the rest was history. In 1970 they were married, had 2 beautiful children and had settled in Manalapan to raise their young family. Arthur and his wife would spend many happy years together traveling and seeing the world, one trip in particular they loved was their 10-day getaway to Italy, an unforgettable trip. Arthur loved to cook his signature dish was chicken and sausage scarpariello, he enjoyed trips to Atlantic City, playing golf, and he loved his grandchildren more than anything in the world.
He is survived by his wife of 49 years Ann Pipitone of Colts Neck, his children Jennifer and her husband Stephen D’Antonio of Jackson, and Jill and her husband Chris Olsen of Jackson; his brother Dennis and his wife Susan Pipitone of Old Bridge, and his cherished grandchildren Gianna, Alexa, Frank and Sebastian.
