Born in Mars Hill, ME on January 13, 1931, a son of the late Ossie and Helen (Fitzherbert) Burtchell, he had resided in the East Hartford/Glastonbury area for many years, retiring in Florida. Arthur was a proud veteran of the U.S. Army during the Korean War. He retired from Pratt & Whitney Aircraft, East Hartford as a General Foreman after 35 years of dedicated service. Arthur was a former member of the B.P.O.E. Lodges in East Hartford and Glastonbury and was a fan of UCONN basketball teams (both Men and Women) and the Boston Red Sox. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved fishing, boating, hunting, hiking, camping, and camp fires. Most of all Arthur was a loving father, grandfather and great-grandfather, who truly enjoyed watching his grandchildren participate in activities and sporting events.

Burtchell, Jr. and his wife Josephine of South Windsor, Russell Burtchell of Glastonbury; daughters, Patricia Namerow of Middletown, RI, Barbara Donovan and her husband Michael of Glastonbury, Jody DelMastro and her husband Dan of Glastonbury; thirteen adored grandchildren; and five cherished great-grandchildren.

In addition to his wife and parents, Arthur was predeceased by two daughters, Sandra Helen Burtchell of Glastonbury, and Sherry Burtchell of Windsor; and a brother and sister-in-law, Harold and Arlene Burtchell of Guilford.
