Arthur Court (1928 - 2015)
With great sadness we announce the passing of Arthur Court before dawn on Sunday, July 19th at the age of 87. Arthur died peacefully, at home with his wife Elena Court and their dogs at his side. He is survived by his children, Charlene, Greg and Jeff, and his granddaughter Fiona.
Arthur founded his company in 1966 and is recognized worldwide as a pioneer in the giftware industry. Elena Court told the office this morning: "He lived intensely, he aged gracefully and died peacefully. The sun was about to rise and it was a beautiful day."
Arthur loved the view of the San Francisco Bay from his house and was a notable early riser. His creativity, vibrant energy and sense of humor left an indelible mark on all who knew him. To see more pictures and tales of Arthur's life, please visit our Facebook page where we'll share rememberances of a remarkable man.
The Court family will hold a private ceremony this week, with a public memorial in September. In lieu of flowers, the family requests consideration of donations to the Arthur & Elena Court Nature Watch Conservancy, established in 1991 to protect animals and the environment, or any charity of choice. Please send Conservancy contributions to PO Box 928, Brisbane, CA 94005. Thank you.
