It is with great sadness that I am writing to inform you of my husband Arthur Corbett's death. He was always very proud to be a member of Arlington High, Class of 1964. He cherished the memories of his friends and the great times they shared even after dementia had robbed him of so many memories. God Bless you all. Sincerely, Christine Corbett

I am so sorry to learn that we have lost a great classmate.  He was a great guy, and it seems as if he was a good family man as well.  --Anne

I think I last saw Art at our 50th Arlington High School Reunion in 2014. Before that, our paths crossed back around 2004/5 when I needed CPA assistance for my florist business in Wellesley. I drove down to Franklin 2-3 times with reams of paperwork and was always greeted with a warm smile. It was great reminiscing with him about the old days growing up in East Arlington (Crosby School, JHE, AHS), and seeing the pride he had for his adopted kids that he loved so dearly. His passing hits home. I'm turning 71 next week. Farewell, my friend...

I am so saddened to hear of Arthur's passing.  He was a kind and gentle friend throughout Crosby School, Junior High East, and High School.  I have sweet memories of him. - Noni

Art was a real gentleman.  I first met him when I had my first job - a paper route in East Arlington working for his parents out of their garage.  Throughout our time at the Junior High East and Arlington High he was always ready with a quick smile and greeting.  All the best, Art!

Artie was, as described by other classmates, a gentleman, always congenial, a good guy.  I can’t say that I ever heard a bad word come out of his mouth.  Artie was a rare personality.  He played football well and with great intensity and yet always is remembered for his gentle soul.  Rest In Peace buddy, you will always be remembered fondly.
