Arthur L. Carney
Beloved Father and Grandfather
Arthur L. Carney, 90, of 7341 Country Road 1, Friendship, joined his beloved wife in heaven on Friday, June 7, 2019 after a lengthy illness.

Born on March 4, 1929, in Cuba, he was a son of John A. and Julia Douglas Carney. On November 12, 1949, he married the former Marjorie M. Goodliff who predeceased him on May 3, 2018.

Art attended Friendship Central School. While his children were young he worked at both Friendship Dairies and for the New York State Department of Transportation. He began his career with the State as a Heavy Equipment Operator, then he was promoted to Foreman and then to his final position of Safety Representative, retiring in 1985.

He was an avid hunter, loved gardening, mowing, and maintaining his property, truly enjoying all that the outdoors had to offer. He was also known as a jack of all trades and used his handyman expertise to fix anything that was broken. He loved finding new artistic and craft ideas to build for his family.

Surviving are a son, Arthur D. (Barbara) Carney of Geneseo, NY; three daughters, Beverly (David) Newton of Beverly Hills, Florida, Bonita Sortore of Friendship and Marsha (Karl) Kruger of Friendship; 9 grandchildren and 16 great grandchildren; a brother, Richard “Dick” (Carolyn) Carney of Friendship; and several nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents and wife he was predeceased by his siblings John, Alfred, Harry, Mary, Lovina, Leona, Violet, Francis, Julia, Sarah, Elizabeth and Loretta.

The family will receive friends at the Mark F. Rinker Funeral Home & Memorial Service, Inc., 9 Bull Street, Cuba, on Tuesday, June 11, 2019 from 7-9 P.M. and again on Wednesday, June 12, 2019 from 10:00 A.M. until Noon at which time funeral services will be held. Anne Jenkins, a Chaplin at Wellsville Manor Care Center, will officiate.

Burial will be in Maple Grove Cemetery, Friendship, New York.
