Artie was an entrepreneur who started his own company, Meleric Supply Inc., and sold building materials for many houses built on the South Shore. He was also a revered clam digger in the area, having out dug many over the years.
He was an avid horse racing fan enjoying summer trips to Saratoga, NY for a day at the track. Golf was another pastime for Artie having played with friends and colleagues for a number of years. He also had a passion for animals, especially his late Chihuahua, Chi Chi.
Most of all, Artie was known for his charisma and people gravitated to him over the years. Everyone wanted to talk to Artie for his sarcastic sense of humor and sage advice!
