I was fortunate to play sports with Artie. Artie, Tom Strano, and myself played pick-up basketball and football games and softball in a mens league. Artie was always kind, friendly and easy going. He will be missed. <3

Dear Angie, Annette, Kim, nieces, nephews and extended family of Artie Jr.; I was very saddened to learn about Artie’s passing. It was many years ago when I first meet Artie here in Cape Breton, and was kept updated on the Tischofer family over the years usually by my brother Frank who kept in touch with Angie or when Angie visited CB. While I knew Artie was dealing with heart issues, his death none the less is a tragic loss to you Angie, his wife Annette and all the family. As a mother I can only imagine your pain. Please accept our sincere condolences on your loss. While these words may not bring you comfort, may your beautiful memories of Artie sustain you through the difficult days ahead❤️.
