A memorial service for former Westhampton Beach resident Arthur DiPietro will be held on Friday, October 25, at 10:30 a.m. at Westhampton Presbyterian Church.
Retired Reverend William Hempel, Mr. DiPietro’s best friend for 56 years, will officiate. All are invited to attend and offer remembrances. Refreshments will be served afterwards in the fellowship hall of the church, of which he was trustee president and which was the home of Mr. DiPietro’s AA group; October 25 would have been his 20-year celebration of sobriety. The next day, in a private ceremony, Mr. DiPietro’s ashes will be spread on a striped bass blitz off Montauk Point, as requested in his will, after which everyone in attendance will fish.
