Tribute & Message From The Family

Louis M. Arcidy, 65, of Bedford, NH ended his two year battle with ALS on November 26, 2019 at his home surrounded by family.

He maintained his positive outlook from the day he was diagnosed until his dignified passing and was a constant source of strength, grace, and humor.
Born in Manchester, NH on October 20, 1954, he was the son of Louis J. and Malinda H. (Maynard) Arcidy. He received his bachelor's degree from St. Anselm College and J.D. from Franklin Pierce Law School.

One of Louis's greatest joys was following in his father's footsteps, continuing the legacy of a family business, RCD Components, for almost 50 years with his siblings. He was known for being a devoted leader who treated all his employees with the utmost respect. Louis will be remembered as a devoted family man who always put the needs of others before his own, even in his difficult final hours of life.

He had a way of making every person he met feel seen, heard, and special. His family will fondly remember his integrity, strong character, steadfast dependability, and of course, his mischievous sense of playfulness.

Family members include his wife of 35 years, Lily Arcidy of Bedford; his daughters, Alexandra Arcidy of Brooklyn, NY, Dana Arcidy of Manhattan, NY and Paige Arcidy of Brighton, MA; his mother, Malinda Arcidy of Bedford; his siblings, Michael Arcidy of Bedford, Mark Arcidy of Florida, Maria Arcidy of Bedford, Alfred Arcidy of Florida; his beloved nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends.

A Mass of Christian burial was celebrated on Saturday, November 30, 2019 in St. Elizabeth Seton Church. Burial followed in Bedford Center Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his memory to either Compassionate Care ALS, P.O. Box 1052, West Falmouth, MA 02574 or the New England Chapter of the ALS Foundation, 10 Ferry St, Unit 438, Concord, NH 03301.

Lou, you will be sorely missed by family, friends, workers, colleagues - everyone! You are the person we all try to be - caring, honest, sincere, thoughtful, funny, dedicated and fair. Here's to the many good times we had - thanks for the memories! Keep them smiling up there! Rick

Lou and I would meet once a year at EDS.
We would both cancel dinner meetings and just the two of us would go to dinner. We did this for years and poor MJ would be stuck going to the business meetings by herself. I have missed Lou the last couple of years at EDS. EDS will never be the same for me. We would talk business and family all evening. You ladies were his life. I also met one of you in Carlsbad California while you and Lou were visiting San Diego. He will be missed by all.

My sincere condolences to The Arcidi Family. I knew Lou, briefly, when I would share yoga with him at his office once a week. As weeks went by, he learned that it was ALS that was changing his body. He was a brave, kind, thoughtful man. I feel honored to have known him.
