Arthur “Art” Stucki, (90) of Boiceville, N.Y. passed peacefully in his sleep early Thursday morning of August 24, 2023 at his residence. He was born on June 17th, 1933 in Jersey City, New Jersey. He was the son of the late Paul and Veronica (Byatt) Stucki.
He was a graduate of Hamilton college in 1955 and continued further studies at Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary in 1956, where he met his future wife Ruth S. Fenwick. They married in Hanau, Germany where he was serving in the United States army after the Korean War. Their love story lasted 57 years; his beloved “Ruthie” went home to be with the Lord in 2014.
He continued the family business of embroidery, a tradition that lasted three generations and originated in Switzerland. Upon moving to Upstate New York in the early 70s, Art and his brother in law Murray Fenwick owned and operated Stucki Embroidery Works and then AM Best until retiring in the late 1990’s. He was proud of his Swiss American heritage, especially manufacturing the stars for the U.S. flag, being one of the top American made flag companies for many years.
Art was an avid sportsman; he loved many outdoor activities like hunting, fishing, gardening and animals. He enjoyed appreciating Gods creation through nature. Throughout his life, Art’s faith and devotion to God was undaunted. His integrity was evident as a businessman, through his personal relationships and those he would meet in passing; always remembering to share his faith in God.
He was an active member of Grace Community Church in Lake Katrine, serving as an elder, deacon and small groups leader, committed to sharing the gospel and church activities. It was important to Arthur to be in the community and serve others.

Grandchildren, Steven Tillinghast and his wife Elizabeth, Stephanie Tillinghast, and Gabriel and Jordan Humdy. Arthur was predeceased by his wife Ruth and his son Steven.
