Art was a lifelong resident of the Cape May area. He retired as a Lieutenant from the Cape May County Sheriff’s Office where he rose through the ranks and held various positions (1982-2007).

After respectfully stepping down as chief, Art took over the role of training officer as well as one of their safety officers. He received various awards and commendation, too numerous to recount. Highly trained, he was a Chief fire academy instructor for the Cape May County Fire Academy. Art was a member of the Cape Island Masonic Lodge #30 F&AM. He was a Green Bay Packers fan; enjoyed being on the road on his Harley motorcycle; and enjoyed the simple things in life, but most of all, he will be long-remembered and forever loved for being a devoted husband, a loving father and Poppy; and dear and true friend to so many. He was recently predeceased by his mother, Ruth Treon (2014). Art will be dearly missed by his loving family which includes his wife, Dora; two sons, Arthur (and Kimberly) Moore and Brian (and Jennifer) Moore; eight grandchildren, Meaghan, Marisa, Gavin, Quinn, A.J., Drew, Owen and Bree; siblings, Dottie Carman, James (and Marleen) Treon, Sondra Cox, Robert Treon and Gary (and Amber) Treon; also many nieces, nephews, cousins, close friends and his firefighting brothers.
