Arthur J. “Arty” Foxwell, Jr.

December 14, 1949 - September 22, 2019

Arthur J. “Arty” Foxwell, Jr., snazzy dresser, collector of all things not needed, Packers fan, Marie Callenders connoisseur and puzzle master, passed away on Sunday afternoon, September 22, 2019, surrounded by family.

Before leaving the building, Arty was a self-employed cable contractor for over 40 years. His glory days consisted of dancing on the Jerry Blavat show, countless concerts (almost made it to Woodstock), cruising in his convertible Austin Healey (yes, he wore a scarf) and water skiing off his dad’s boat.

But what Arty enjoyed most was spending time with his family and close friends including camping trips, jet skiing, playing hot potato with the grand kids and playing poker with the boys.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Arthur and Doris Foxwell.  Arty is survived by his wife, Lainie; brother, Michael Foxwell (Norma); his children, Jason, Jamie (Eva) and Katie (Ryan); his grandchildren, Regina, Isabella, Lena, Lilliana, Coleton and Juliana; his great grandchildren, Anthony, Alaina and Viviana; and many cousins, nieces, nephews and close friends.

A visitation for family and friends will be held from 9 am until 11 am on Friday, September 27, 2019, at Spicer-Mullikin Funeral Home, 1000 North DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE, where a funeral service will begin at 11 am.  Interment will follow in Gracelawn Memorial Park, 2220 North DuPont Parkway, New Castle, DE.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Arty’s memory to the Helen Graham Cancer Center, PO Box 1668, Wilmington, DE 19899.
