Arthur C. Martello

May 14, 1930 — July 4, 2023

Arthur was born in Chicago on May 14th, 1930. He had met and fell for Rose, the love of his life, during their high school years. They were together for 78 years and married for 69 years. Arthur graduated from both the University of Illinois and Loyola University, ultimately achieving his doctorate in dentistry. Arthur was a proud veteran who honorably served as a Captain in the United States Air Force. After his return home from his time in the service, he established a dental practice in Chicago Heights serving his patients for over 40 years. He was also a proud parishioner of St. Anthony Catholic Church in Frankfort.


In his spare time, he loved golfing, country line dancing and going to the race track. Above all else, Arthur loved his family deeply. “Doc” Martello will be missed by all that knew him.
