Beekman – Arthur R. Humphreys, 82, an area resident since 2007 and formerly of Oceanside, rose upon the horizon of a perfect, endless day, on January 9, 2021, at his home, surrounded by family.

Born on September 29, 1938, in Freeport, N.Y., he was the son of Arthur and Celestine (Terris) Humphreys. Arthur was a Steamfitter with Local #638 in Manhattan for 38 years until his retirement in 1987. He was also the owner of Artie’s Corner Antiques in Baldwin for 20 years. He was a Catholic & was a member of the Knights of Columbus in Oceanside. He proudly served in the Army National Guard of NY in the early 1960’s. In his youth, Artie worked with steel to help build NYC skyscrapers, and, in later years, with wood to create simple Christian crosses, both pursuits gave him reward. He enjoyed woodworking, bird watching, & helping people, but more than anything he loved spending time with his family, friends, co-workers, and neighbors! “Thank you, thank you, thank you!” – Love, Artie

Arthur is survived by his children & their spouses, Thomas & Karen of Northport, Andrew & Andrea of Hopewell Junction, Julia & Shawn Lane of Mount Sinai, Robert & Tara of East Rockaway, William & Victoria of Mattituck; his grandchildren, Devin & Ryan, Alexander & Felecia, Gregory, Gabrielle, Edward & Jessica, Taylor, Jack, Eloise & Gavin; his great-grandchildren, Scarlett & Violet; his former wife, Ruth Ellen Ryder; his siblings, Celestine & Bud Yanelli, & Paul and Jo Ann Humphreys; & nieces, nephews, great-nieces & great-nephews, including Michael & Laura, Celestine & Christopher, brother-in-law John, Kathy & Richard, Carol & William, Joseph & Tammi, and Theresa & Christopher, pre-deceased by Patricia & Michael.

Calling hours will be held on Friday, January 22, from 4-7pm at the McHoul Funeral Home, Inc., 895 Route 82, Hopewell Junction. The Mass of Christian Burial will be offered on Saturday, January 23 at 11:30am at St. Columba Church, 835 Route 82, Hopewell Junction followed by interment in St. Denis Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please donate to a local food pantry.

I thought of you today but that is nothing new. I thought of you yesterday and days before that too. I think of you in silence and speak your name. All I have are memories and your picture in a frame. Your memory is forever. God has you now but you are in my heart.
Paul and Jo Ann

I’m not sure if you knew that Artie was a participant in the ladies Bible study group. The first time he was to join them he decided that he’d” look the part “!!
