Arthur Steven Titus passed away on Saturday, September 10, 2016. He was the son of the late Kevork and Takouhie Titus (Tateosian) of Forest Hills, New York. A graduate of Forest Hills High School, Arthur was a career electrician and longtime member of IBEW Local 3 in New York City. A lifetime parishioner of St. George Armenian Church in Hartford, CT, Arthur served on the Parish Council and prevailed in several tavloo (backgammon) tournaments!

Arthur was married for 31 years to the late Virginia Choolgian Titus, who died in 1999. Arthur and Virginia raised their family in Farmington, CT, spending summers on the "Armenian coast" of Old Silver Beach, as residents of West Falmouth, MA. Aside from his family, Arthur's greatest love in life was his beloved Los Angeles ("Brooklyn") Dodgers, a passion he exhibited for 68 years. Capstone experiences from those decades of devotion include friendships with countless Dodgers players and affiliates, meeting with the greatest announcer of all-time, Vin Scully, ballpark chats with Hall of Famer Tommy Lasorda, and eight seasons as a Spring Training ticket holder at Camelback Ranch in Arizona. However, the Dodgers fan experience of which his children remain particularly proud is when their dad threw out the ceremonial first pitch at a spring training game on March 7, 2014, wearing the game jersey of his childhood hero: Duke Snider #4.

He is survived by a brother Richard M. Titus and his wife Anita, of Forest Hills, New York; his daughter, Maro Virginia Titus, who resides in Quincy, MA and his son, John Kevork Titus, of Glastonbury, CT.

A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, September 15, 2016 at St. George Armenian Church, 22 White Street, Hartford. A private burial will follow at Cedar Hill Cemetery, Hartford.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. George Armenian Church in Hartford, CT or to the Arthur S. Titus Internship Fund at the National Baseball Hall of Fame, 25 Main Street, Cooperstown, NY 13326 or via phone at (607) 547-0310 or email at www.baseballhall.org.
