Artie C. Cucci, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Tuesday, March 26,2024 surrounded by his loving family.

A self-proclaimed "Jack of all trades, master of none", his many certifications and careers included: Being co-owner of car dealerships, barber, carpenter, realtor, firefighter of 27 years, retired Fire Marshal, and a devoted father.

He is survived by his loving wife, Christine, whom he fell in love with because of her beautiful long hair, how she always laughed at his sense of humor, her love of nature, but mostly, because of her kindness.

He is also survived by his two daughters, Tina and Suzzie, "his Spirits of Christmas, his stars on the tree...".

He was a good Papa to his grandchildren: Mary, who shares his own mother's blue eyes; Alex who looks like a young version of himself; and Angelo, whose curly hair reminded him of his own baby brother.

Artie loved supporting his daughters at their recitals, events, and family adventures, and he would often be found wearing an 80's camcorder on his shoulder to record those precious moments.

Awaiting for him in Heaven are his younger brother Sammy and his beloved parents. Also, Grandpa Jack, his birthday twin Marie, his buddy Ralph and his best friend Bob Philbin Sr.

He was a friendly patron to many Oak Lawn, Orland Park, and Frankfort establishments. He greeted everyone he met with his ace smile and friendly demeanor, and was recognized by all; and became a friend to so many.

Thank you for praying that I have a "safe trip to Heaven" is what he would say.
