Arthur Fontes III

Posted at 11:52am
This would be my grandfather. I am Arthur Fontes III. I never had a chance to meet the man who's name I carry on. I regret never having the chance to make his acquaintance. All my life I wondered who was the man that started the lineage of my name. Being the third without knowing senior and barely knowing junior, has always left a gap in my acceptance of myself. It makes me wonder how we would have gotten along had I met him during his life. I always fantasized about what kind of person my grandfather was, no one told me anything about him. After reviewing the obituary, I have the feeling he was a proud, loving man...I regret never having the chance to know him. To all my relatives I will never meet....God Bless...I wish I had the chance to know you

Our paths first crossed at GTE Labs, but my favorite memories of Art are from the years when he and Pat came to the Marlborough Evening of Giving and the laughs we had sharing email jokes and stories. Although I won’t be able to attend his funeral, I will be there in spirit. My sincere sympathy, Nancy Hough
