Arthur Anthony Corallo was born October 14, 1969, and was welcomed home by our heavenly Father unexpectedly on Saturday, November 6, 2021, due to an unknown, underlying medical condition after spending the morning doing his favorite thing, hunting in the woods. He was raised in Eagle River, WI where he went to High School at NPHS, moved to Wausau at age 18, and attended UWMC, graduating from UWSP. He lived in Wausau until recently moving to Green Bay.
Arthur met Deb, his high school sweetheart, in 1987 and they have been devoted to each other ever since, celebrating their 29th wedding anniversary this past year. Arthur was a loving father to MacKenzie (Andy Mahler), Dakota, and Jacob. He was an adoring Papa to his beautiful granddaughter, Emma Grace who at just a few months old, convinced him he needed to move to Green Bay and live half a mile from her. His children were his life, and he was involved in every aspect of them from the start. He enjoyed coaching all three kids in soccer, supporting every hobby they started and being involved in every relationship they had. There is nothing he would not do for them, and he spent as much time with them as possible.
He was a caring son to Anthony and Linda Corallo, brother to Shannon (Andrew Komisar) and Heather (Dave Hoover). He was a caring and involved brother-in-law and son-in-law and uncle to many beautiful nieces and nephews as well as great-nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his grandfather Arthur and many very loved family members and friends.
He loved to travel all over the country, Caribbean islands, and other locations such as Canada and Africa to name a few. He loved gardening and spending endless hours outside planting and tending to his flowers which surrounded his home and making a vegetable garden that grew larger by the years. He enjoyed making his own salsa, applesauce, and red sauces to give away to his kids, family, and friends. He also loved being active and could not sit still for long without getting involved in some sort of project. He enjoyed hunting, spending time in the woods, woodworking in the garage, golfing, playing racquetball, snowmobiling, and most recently, thanks to Andy and Jake, going on motorcycle rides. He was a friend to so many, never too busy to help others. He lived life so large and there is not enough space to describe how much he loved his family and life. There is nothing he left unsaid and made friends everywhere he went. He was a faithful part of RMM Solutions where he worked for 19 years achieving multiple certifications and milestones in his career. He had a passion for helping others through his time as a volunteer firefighter/EMT and was an involved community member.
Arthur made an impact on every life he touched, and he will be greatly missed. Loved ones can be comforted by knowing that they will one day see him again.
The celebration of life services for Arthur will be held at 3 p.m. on Thursday, November 11, 2021, at the Highland Community Church, 1005 N 28th Ave, Wausau. A gathering of family and friends will be held at the church on Thursday from 1:00 p.m. until the time of service.
