Art loved baseball and coached for the last 15 years, most recently coaching his son Daniel with Northern Calvert Little League. Art loved the Washington Nationals and was a season ticket holder for many years. As Art would say, he was a longtime suffering Cubs fan as well. Art was an avid sailor and spent many years sailing with his sons and beloved friends. Above all else, Art was a devoted father to his two sons, Joseph and Daniel. He was a very proud father and put them above anything else in life. Art was larger than life and loved by everyone, he will be greatly missed.

Arthur Joseph Masoero II and Daniel James Masoero, both of Dunkirk, significant other Pamela Rossomondo of Olney, MD, mother Celeste “Sue” Masoero of Hampton, VA, brother Anthony Masoero of Hampton, VA, and many, many dear friends. He was preceded in death by his father Colonel Arthur Roger Masoero, Sr., sisters Christina Antoinette Benn, Corrinne Suzanne Masoero and Carmen Marie Masoero.
In lieu of flowers, Art’s family humbly requests donations be made to support the future educational and housing needs of Joseph and Daniel.
