And Loving Husband And Father

Arvid Charles Sieber, MD, 76, of Woodbury, beloved husband of Helen Curtis Sieber, died at Waterbury Hospital, March 25, after a brief illness. He was born in Jersey City, N.J., December 1, 1933, son of Charles Sieber and Paula (Neuberger) Sieber.

He attended Mount St Mary’s College in Emmitsburg, Md., and the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, where he graduated from medical school in 1960. He served in the Air Force in Kansas City, Mo., and then started a general medical practice in his hometown of Hendersonville, N.C. He later served as a corporate medical doctor at Olin Corporation in Stamford and as a staff physician in the Emergency Department at Danbury Hospital. In 1978, he went into private practice in family medicine in Ridgefield, and remained there until his initial retirement in 1998. He later served as a staff physician at the Southbury Training School, where he completed his rewarding medical career in 2005.

He greatly cherished spending time with his family and friends, and also enjoyed gardening, and playing the piano and organ.
