Arthur John Brasley, 92, formerly of Bristol, CT and Rindge, NH died peacefully on April 19, 2020. He was the son of the late Arthur and Mary Brasley. Arthur attended St. Joseph's Elementary School and the Bristol High School. He received a college degree from Wards School of Engineering in Hartford, CT and later had a career as a manufacturing engineer at various companies in CT and NH. Arthur loved living on Pool Pond in NH and referred to it as God's country. He and Kitty spent many days sitting by the lake surrounded by family and friends. He was a devout catholic, attending mass three times a week until recently, when his health prevented it. He was active with the Knights of Columbus and ran the yearly blood drive. He also served lunch daily to the seniors at his local senior center. He cared deeply for others and was always the first to gather food, clothes or money for families less fortunate. In addition to his parents, Arthur was predeceased by his wife, Catherine “Kitty” (Palaia) Brasley and a son, Gary Brasley, his brother Harold Brasley and his wife, Winifred, and a sister Mary Mansfield and her husband, David. His surviving children are Kathleen Fletcher of Harwinton, CT and her husband, Robert; Keith Brasley of New Hartford, CT and his wife, Janice; Ann Marie DelGiudice of Bristol, CT and her husband, David; and Wendy Putnam of Peterborough, NH and her husband, Tony. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Nathan Fletcher and his wife, Michele, Kevin Fletcher and his wife, Elizabeth, Shallon Brasley and her husband, Jared Mills, Nicholas DelGiudice and his wife, Lindsay, Leah DelGiudice, Eric Brasley, Jonathan Brasley and Kathryn Brasley; one great grandchild, Mary Charlotte Fletcher and a large extended family including many nieces and nephews. Those who wish to remember Arthur in a special way may make gifts in his memory to St. Patrick Catholic Church, 87 Main St, Jaffrey, NH 03452. A service of remembrance will be held at a future date.
