Art was born in Springfield Massachusetts on August 23, 1936 to Arthur G. Crowell Sr. and Dorothy Carlson Crowell.
Art spent his young childhood living on a farm in Pennsylvania along with his younger brother John. Summers were spent at their grandparents cottage on Norwich Lake in Massachusetts at "Camp Judy". He often reminisced.
He was a Danbury resident since his teens. He met his future bride at 14 1/2. Told her "I'm going to marry you". The rest is history. Art graduated from the first class of Henry Abbott Technical School as a machinist.
He was predeceased by his daughter Darlene Crowell.
In addition to his wife of 65 years, Art is survived by his five children: Deborah Clark (David); Anita Francisco (Arthur); Sue Farrington (Tom); Arthur Allen Crowell and Dan Crowell (Lori Norcia). Art leaves 4 grandchildren. Katrina Amundsen, Brett Herman, Iris and Benjamin Norcia-Crowell. His brother John Crowell and wife, Marie, also survive him.
Art was a 64 year member of the local Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Danbury, and remained so until his death. He leaves hundreds of spiritual brothers and sisters who loved him for his genuine kindness, jovial personality and humility.
The family would like to express immense gratitude to the staff at Newtown Rehab and Healthcare Center for their loving care of our father over the years. They are like family.

So sorry for your loss, Art was a beautiful soul and lots of fun on top of it. He will always be remembered as a gentleman at Masonic Care.

Art! "You can call me Art he said". "What's your name?", he asked.
"It's a tough one", I said, smiling. "Are you ready? Ghada" and I paused. "It's different, I know. If you can't remember it, G, is fine", I giggled. "I can figure it out, gotta get it Ghada", he chuckled and he remembered.
Yes, he did. He would know me from my voice as I enter the room or as I greet him in the hallway, "Is this you Ghada?", "Is it you, Ghada?". "Yes, it is me Art", and yes, he remembered it till the last day I took care of him. Little did I know that 2 days later, he will no longer be with us and I will no longer hear him call my name.
Dear Art, Dear Mr. Crowell, now that you have left us behind, you will be missed dearly. Your side of your room feels empty and yet filled with memories. Happy ones and sad ones. Your beloved Sara and your sweet daughters will be the sweet reminder of your presence. We will share memories and keep you alive in our conversations.
A solitaire game and Chuck Norris's Walker Texas Ranger will be a tickle in my heart forever more.
You left us behind, but you will live in our memories...in my memory and heart.
I bid you farewell, Mr. crowell. Oh...Art.

I met Art almost 6 years ago I was one of many CNA’S that took care of him. I was there at his final moments... He was always full of jokes and laughs my nickname he gave me was Toni/Pony because I always wore a ponytail in my hair ... He will be truly missed I loved this guy to pieces.. And I had a special bond with his daughter Anita and his wife Sara..Every time I went to work I made sure he was part of my assignment and if he wasn’t I traded with someone just so I could take care of him... He made my nights pleasurable..., 💔
