Arthur Satkowski

Arthur “Artie” Satkowski, 69, of Medina, passed away peacefully at his home on Wed., July 29, 2020 with his loving wife at his side.

Born on March 10, 1951 in Medina, he was the son of the late Ben and Anna (Will) Satkowski.

Arthur worked for the NYS Department of Corrections & Community Supervision and retired with 25 years of dedicated service. He retired to Las Vegas for six years, and then returned home to be with his family and friends. In his younger years, he was an avid bowler who managed the Medina Bowling Alley. He enjoyed fishing with his father, his brother Tom, and many friends. Arthur was a strong-minded individual who always spoke his mind in a tone for all to hear. This confidence carried over into his love of poker and his willingness to call you for the hand. Arthur possessed a green thumb, always producing one of the best vegetable gardens in the area. He would frequently be found selling the sweetest strawberries in front of his home. He had a great affection for dogs, leading him to his most recent endeavor of dog care; and he loved his two dogs, Luna and Bella. He truly treasured his family and friends.
