Arthur Pierre RemyMay 27, 2001 ~ February 12, 2017 (age 15)
Arthur Pierre Remy, 15, of Mamaroneck, NY, died on February 12, 2017 at his beloved Lake Winnipesaukee, NH. Eldest child of Arnaud and Trina Riso Remy, he was born in London, England on May 27, 2001.
Arthur was a sophomore at French-American School of New York where he was also a leader on the JV soccer and basketball teams. Always active in rec sports, Arthur played soccer with the Larchmont Lions since age 6, as well as football, baseball and lacrosse. A New Englander at heart, Arthur’s greatest passion was the outdoors: fishing, hunting, archery, sailing and countless water sports. Arthur was a budding entrepreneur with his Hook-in-a-Box business, which allowed him to share his expertise of various baits and lures with fellow fishermen. Most recently, Arthur launched a community service project to teach underprivileged children about the great outdoors.
Arthur had an amazing, open spirit and a zest for life. With a twinkle in his blue eyes and an easy grin, he brightened any room the moment he stepped in. Arthur loved spending summertime with his family in France, as well as cousins and friends at Lake Winni. He was outnumbered in a family with many little girls, but he loved his role as big brother, and always helped the little ones. A steadfast fan of the Boston Red Sox and New England Patriots, Arthur was a good sportsman who happily endured a lot of 'heat' from friends in New York. Arthur made friends easily wherever he went, and was loved by classmates, teammates, teachers and coaches. He was sincere, selfless and joyful, and left a lasting impression on whoever crossed his path. "What a great kid…"
In addition to his loving parents, Arthur leaves two sisters, Alice and Juliette Remy; paternal grandparents, Pierre Remy and Liliane Mollier; maternal grandparents, Thomas and Diane Riso; aunts and uncles, Amiee Riso, Amanda and Eric O’Brien, and Nathalie and Emmanuel Berthier; cousins, Madison, Emma, Teagan and Anna O’Brien, as well as Pauline and Quentin Remy. Arthur was predeceased by his paternal grandmother, Chamberlaine Remy.
