Dr. Herbert George Arlt, Jr., 90, of Ridgeway, SC, died Wednesday, December 5, 2018. He was born on November 28, 1928 in Brooklyn, NY, to the late Herbert George Arlt, Sr. and Muriel Jean Baddeley Arlt.

Dr. Arlt earned his PHD in organic chemistry and relocated to Ridgefield with his family in 1962 to work at American Cyanamid (which later became a part of Arizona Chemical) in Stamford, CT in research and development. He later moved to Kinnelon, New Jersey and then to Panama City, Florida where he worked at the International Paper Co. in management until his retirement.

One of his favorite places was the Adirondacks and he was an avid outdoorsman who loved canoeing and camping. He shared this love with his six children. He was able to fix anything whether it was mechanical, emotional, or if we just needed guidance in how to research and solve a problem. He will be missed.

Herbert is survived by his children, H. Bruce Arlt (Nancy) of Ridgeway, Jeri Lynn Lorenzini (Richard) of Ridgefield, CT, Diane Pierone (Michael) of Pohatcong, NJ, Claire Lambiasi (Charles) of Harrisburg, PA, David K. Arlt (Denise) of Lincoln Park, NJ and Herbert G. Arlt III (Rebecca) of Ridgeway; 21 grandchildren; and 18 great-grandchildren.

Herbert was predeceased by his wife, Barbara Alice Dailey Arlt; and his sister, Muriel Barbara Finneran.
