Arthur was a proud veteran of the Army Air Corps during World War II, after which he was able to attend the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business under the GI Bill. Arthur achieved his degree, with honors, in only 2 1/2 years. After passing the CPA exams, Arthur looked to pursue a professional life in the homebuilding industry and founded Stein Built Homes. He set his sights on Delaware Township, now known as Cherry Hill, and created communities such as Willowdale and Eagle Oak. As a visionary, he was the very first homebuilder to introduce the concept of “condominium” living to the state of New Jersey and developed Cooper Valley Village in Edgewater Park as well as Watergate in Maple Shade, Uxbridge, Chanticleer, and Society Hill, all of Cherry Hill. Arthur created neighborhoods in over 30 communities in 13 municipalities, along with Bill Ridgway, his long-time business partner. A past president of the South Jersey Builders League, Arthur’s commitment to community extended past his professional life. His contributions to the Jewish organizations and synagogues were a dedicated priority to him. Arthur was among a small group of local businessmen with a vision for the Jewish community that stepped forward to buy the land that is now home to the Katz JCC. Nan and Art, together were honorees at an Israel Bonds Dinner, and Art served as a board member of the JCC, Temple Emanuel, and B’nai B’rith.
