Arthur Kitchen, 71 of Manasquan passed away peacefully at his home on March 15, 2019 with his loving family by his side after a battle with Esophageal Cancer. Artie was born on February 7, 1948 to William Francis Kitchen and Myrtle Augusta (Carey) Kitchen. He graduated from Tottenville High School in 1965 and received his BS in Criminology from New York Technical Institute in 1978. Artie served in the US Navy patrolling the waters of Vietnam on board the USS Satyr. After his military service Artie served on the NYPD for 20 years working in Manhattan at the 7th Pct and later in Staten Island’s at the 123rd Pct. Artie was married for 48 years to the love of his life, Joan (Campbell). Together they owned and operated a locksmith business, Action Lock & Key, in Annadale, Staten Island, NY. His passion was fishing with his Dad and his three boys. He loved the Yankees, going to Atlantic City, being with family and friends, BBQ’s on the deck, going to the beach, cruises and meeting his Navy buddies all over the country.

He will be greatly missed by his wonderful wife Joan of Manasquan; his amazing sons Jeffrey (Noel), Arthur (Jill) and Michael. He was known as “Poppo” to his grandchildren Fiona, Quinn and Atticus. Artie is also survived by his beloved sisters Judith (Francis) Marsh and Beatrice “the Banker” (Robert) Albanese as well as many nieces, nephews, family and friends. He was the best son, brother, husband, father, grandfather and friend anyone could ask for. We are truly blessed to have had him in our lives.

Family and friends are invited to attend a visitation on Sunday March 17, 2019 from 3-7 pm at Orender Family Home for Funerals 2643 Old Bridge Road Manasquan, NJ 08736.

Thinking of your family in this time of loss. Mr. Kitchen was a generous, kind man who always kept his door open to us "kids". I have such fond memories of the times I spent with your family bbqing in NJ or just relaxing on the beach. He was a great conversationalist and always made me feel like one of the family. Xo
