Artie was born September 12, 1952, in Cape May Court House, New Jersey. He was a family man in every sense of the word. Artie was a loving husband, dad, poppy, brother, uncle and son. He married the love of his life, Dora J. Treon, August 26, 1989. They were married for 25 years but together for 36 wonderful years. Artie and Dora were not only husband and wife, they were best friends. He was the proud dad of two sons, Arthur (Kim) Moore and Brian (Jenn) Moore, and a loving Poppy to his eight grandchildren, Meaghan, Marisa, Gavin, Quinn, AJ, Drew, Owen, and Bree. He was a loving brother to Dottie Carman, James (Marleen) Treon, Sondra Cox, Robert Treon, and Gary (Amber) Treon, and uncle to many nieces and nephews. Artie was a Green Bay Packers fan, and when not spending time with his family, he loved being on the road on his Harley.
He joined the Town Bank Volunteer Fire Company in 1975. He obtained his 10-year star and became a life member in 1985. He held the office of vice president, president, lieutenant, captain, and deputy chief. He served as chief of the department from 1995-2009. After stepping down as chief, Artie took on the role of safety officer. Artie received various awards and commendations too numerous to recount. Highly trained, he was a chief fire academy instructor for the Cape May County Fire Academy. Artie retired in 2007, as lieutenant, from the Cape May County Sheriff’s Office after 25 years of service. Shortly after his retirement, he began working for the Cape May County Office of Emergency Management, where he held the position of deputy coordinator. Artie was also an active member of the Cape Island Masonic Lodge #30 F&AM.
Artie was one of a kind. He loved life and always said to “live life to the fullest.” Although his family always came first, he loved being a firefighter, serving and protecting the community and helping others in any way he could. His family, friends, firefighter brothers, and the community suffered a great loss when Artie passed. His memory will never be forgotten, as many have said that he was their mentor and hoped to be more like the kind of man Artie was. He will be deeply missed.
