Arthur R. De Vries Jr., 43, passed away on Thursday, January 6, 2011, at St. Michael's Medical Center in Newark.

Born and raised in Sussex, New Jersey, Art had lived there until moving to the Forest Hills section of Newark 15 years ago. He had graduated from High Point Regional High School in 1986 and then attended Upsala College. After receiving his degree from Upsala College, he attended American Academy McAllister Institute of Funeral Service, graduating in 1990. Art served his funeral service apprenticeship with Pinkel Funeral Home in Sussex, where he became a licensed funeral director.

Art later decided to leave the funeral business and became the president of Progressive Tours, Inc. in Newark.

He is survived by his parents, Arthur and Helen De Vries of Dingman's Ferry, Pennsylvania, and his three sisters, Debbie Pellegrini and her husband, John, of Milford, Pennsylvania; Donna Clark-Kelsey and her husband, Gregory, of Hinesburg, Vermont, and Linda De Vries Wall and her fiance, John Durham, of Milford, Pennsylvania; eight nieces; two great-nephews and two great-nieces.
