Longtime Monmouth Beach resident and Fair Haven and Red Bank doctor, Dr. Arthur S. Loebel, passed away on Saturday, July 6, at his home. He was 91.

“Arthur was a well-published clinician and practiced for over 30 years in Fair Haven and Red Bank, and was one of the founding members of Red Bank Medical Associates, which was renamed Riverview Medical Associates after his retirement. He was beloved by his patients for his passionate care and ever-curious mind, never giving up until he discovered the cause of an illness. He loved his work and his relationships with his patients and his colleagues …

“Fitness was always a priority for Arthur. He was an avid tennis player and more recently fell in love with pickleball. A voracious reader, he especially enjoyed books about world history. Arthur maintained his medical license until his death, always studying and keeping up with the latest advances in his field. He and his wife and best friend Nancy had several close friends that they enjoyed socializing with. Arthur and Nancy loved learning about and traveling to new places, and kept up with many friends that they met while traveling. Arthur was also very interested in researching and discussing financial markets.”
