Arthur Livingston Fitz


With a heavy heart I say goodbye to my dear Arthur, who passed away unexpectedly Monday, May 17, 2021. Born in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., Dec. 7, 1950. He attended medical school UNC Chapel Hill, did his residency at Duke University Medical Center, four years at Brook Army Medical Center in San Antonio, came to the Shore and became one of the radiologists of NAMH and worked there for over 20 years.

He leaves behind his wife, Jeanette; son, Robert; daughter, Rachael, and her sons, Riley, James, and Franklin; his mother, Daphne Fritz, of Burlington, Vt.; his brother, David, in Chicago; his sister, Marian, in Vermont; his brother, Tom, in Vermont; his niece, Kristina; and nephew, Elliot.

He was a man of few words, unless you knew him well. He was a kind, loving husband and father. He was true to his friends, brother in time of need, and staunchest ally. He would bring laughter in moments you needed it most. He loved nature, travel, hiking in the mountains of North Carolina, skiing in Colorado with the Browns, and hunting in Texas with his son, Robert, and dear friend, Charlie Brown.

We all miss you, my love. You were the love of my life, one of a kind, uniquely, Arthur.
