Arthur, a World War II Navy veteran, served honorably in the Pacific Theater and witnessed the signing of the Armistice. Arthur successfully owned and operated Prisco‘s Metal Works. As a devoted Catholic and communicant of Saint Adalbert Catholic Church he established his foundation to be the dedicated patriarch of his family. Arthur, an avid golfer, was the last of the original 1962 founding members of the Triggs Men’s Inner Club and a lifetime member of the Tri-City Elks Lodge #14. He enjoyed ballroom dancing with Della and vacationing with his family at Buttonwoods.

Mr. Prisco leaves his loving daughter, Joan with whom he resided; three devoted sons Joseph and wife Sallie; Charles and wife Carole; Leonard and wife Barbara. He was the grandfather of Jennifer, Christina, Jeffrey, Michael, Amanda, Matthew, Anthony, Nathan, and Nicholas Prisco and great-grandfather of Gillian, Caleb, Parker, Wyatt, Emerson, Avery, Sutton, Nora, and Lily Prisco. Many nieces and nephews also survive Arthur. His brothers John, Leonard, Albert, Alfred, and Joseph predeceased him.
