Arthur C. Vooys “Art”, age 83, of Mahwah, died Friday, February 19, 2021 surrounded by his loving family. Art was born in Ramsey, NJ, the 2nd child of Arie and Winnie Vooys.

Prior to his retirement, Art was a Mason with the Brick Layers Union #4 in Ridgewood. He was a member of Faith Reformed Church in Midland Park.
