It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of a loving husband, father, son and friend. Arthur Victor Mattuli was born February 14th, 1954 and passed away on January 17th, 2018 peacefully in his home. He is survived by his wife Nelly, daughter Cassandra (Greg), son Anthony, mother Irene, brother Perry (Chris), and numerous nieces, nephews and extended family members. He was predeceased by his father Victorio and was loved by many friends and family.

Art was born and raised in Edmonton. He served over 35 years working for AGT/Telus fixing telephone lines and retired in 2012. Although he enjoyed his work, serving his community was just as important. Art volunteered his time to the Dovercourt Community and was extremely involved in the Edmonton Minor Softball Association.

Among watching sports Arthur enjoyed the time he spent with his friends and family. Weekend camping trips, family game nights, and many nights watching softball.

It is difficult to sum up a man like Art in a simple write up. A man like Art only comes around once in a lifetime. Please join us on Tuesday January 23th, 2:00 in the afternoon at Inglewood CRC (12330-113 Ave) to celebrate the life of Arthur. This will be followed by refreshments and a time for sharing memories at Dovercourt Community Hall (13510 Dovercourt Ave).

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the charity of your choice or the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
