ARTHUR R. STUDER, JR.
He is survived by Marsha Frederick, his longtime companion; brothers, Russell of California and Keith of Maine; children, Vicky Woolfe (Bucky) of Jacksonville, FL, June Parks (Bill) of Tucson, AZ, Arthur Studer, III (Teresa) of Tucson, AZ, Jolene Sargent of Marshfield, MA, John Studer (Kelly) of Lakeville, MA, Christine Studer (Frank) of Wareham, MA; Marisa Frederick of Old Town, and Kellie Brooks (Wes) of Burnham; 14 grandchildren; 2 great grandchildren.
Art served in the U. S. Army, and worked for Freightliner of Maine, Interstate Batteries of Maine, and New England Telephone Company in Portland, before retiring in October 2005. He also worked for a time as an auto mechanic in Detroit. Art was a man of few words and usually kept his own council. It wasn’t for lack of interest - just his way - preferring to observe from afar and take it all in. Those who knew Art, knew he was passionate about the world around him. He had a great respect for and cared deeply about wildlife and also enjoyed camping. Whether traveling the country by motorhome, or exploring the great state of Maine on his motorcycle, he was happiest outdoors. He was humane, and this was his life, a journey not to be wasted. Although he wasn’t a traditionally religious person, he was particularly fond of the San Xavier Mission in Tucson, Arizona where he felt a spiritual bond. Living and dying was all a part of life, he said. He also cared about his community in volunteering with the Detroit Fire Department. For years he served as area rep for the United Bikers of Maine and participated in the annual UBM Toy Run to help bring Christmas to needy kids. He embraced using the computer to explore its endless resources of information, news and adventure, at his fingertips. He will be missed and remembered by his family and friends near and far.
