Arthur R. Ondish, 50, Mayor of Mt. Arlington Borough, passed away on Tuesday March 8, 2016.

Born in Denville on June 26, 1965 to Joyce and the late George Ondish Art was a lifelong resident of Mt. Arlington with deep roots dating back to the late 1930's when his Grandparents built a summer home on Bertrand Island.

 Art's mom and dad purchased a home on the island in the 1950's. They were volunteers in the Borough for over 30 years. Art and his two brothers were raised in that house until 1992 when he made a big move across the street where he's lived since then with his wife, Yvonne. Art loved Bertrand Island!
