Arthur Joseph DeGeorge (Art), 82, of Trenton, went peacefully home to be with the Lord on Monday, February 15, 2021, at home surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Trenton, he was a lifelong area resident. A graduate of Trenton Catholic, class of 1957, he worked as boiler room operator for over 30 years. He spent 7 years as part of the National Guard. In 1977, he met his wife, Linda (Hasty). They were married in 1979 and raised two beautiful daughters.
A man of faith with a great love for the Lord, he was a member of the Immaculate Conception Church, and later the Hamilton Square Baptist Church, where he played the drums with the Praise Team for several years.
Affectionately known as Uncle Vito, Big A, BoBo, and Pun, he was famous for assigning nicknames to those closest to him. His dry sense of humor always had us wondering if he was really serious. He enjoyed playing the drums, listening to jazz, family gatherings, his cats, and horse racing (his last bet was a winner). He was the drummer in the band, Solid Gold, as well as other bands. His family was a great source of pride for him, and he loved them deeply.
Art was predeceased by his parents, Joseph and Jennie DeGeorge; his brother and sister-in-law, Albert and Charlotte DeGeorge; his sister and brother-in-law, Anna and John Starling; and two infant children.
He is survived by Linda DeGeorge, his loving wife of 41 years; his loving and devoted daughters and their spouses, Bethany and Richard Falcon of Hamilton; and Abby and Kevin Wilson of California; his much-loved grandchildren Ryan Wilson and Ava Rose Falcon; his third “daughter” Joanna Starling; his extended family; several nieces and nephews; a circle of close friends; and his cats Moo Shoo and Pauley Walnuts.
A private viewing will held for the family. A graveside service will be scheduled for the spring.
Arrangements are under the care of Riverside Memorial Chapels in Ewing, NJ.
