He was born in Trenton, NJ to Arturo and Lella (Lucidi) Bartolozzi on July 9, 1925. He was married to the love of his life, Maryann (Palombi), for 61 years.
He is survived by his four children, Arthur R. Bartolozzi III, M.D. (Terry Hazzard), Elyse Morris (Robert Bencher), Maria Bartolozzi, M.D. (Lou Giannotti) and Fabian Bartolozzi, Esq. (Sandra Blatz).

He is also survived by many nieces and nephews.
After graduating from Trenton Catholic Boys High School, he matriculated at Georgetown University in Washington DC, earning a B.S. degree in a double major, chemistry and biology. He then studied at Columbia University School of Public Health. While at Georgetown, he played the position of forward on the varsity basketball team. He was invited to participate in the 100-year celebration of Georgetown basketball, along with many notable players.
In his first job he served as a Chemist for the City of Trenton. Subsequently, he served as Health Officer for Cherry Hill Township and several municipalities in the State of NJ.
