Fishers Island Gazette
May 1989 Issue Vol. 3 No 2
John Arasimowicz, who was known as John Chestnut, died at home on February 16 after a long illness.
He was 76 years old. Mr. Chestnut was the retired caretaker of "Gray Gulls" at the home of Mr. & Mrs. Reynolds duPont.
A life member of the American Legion, Mr. Chestnut was also the oldest member of the Fire Department.
The image most people will retain of Mr. Chestnut is that of the lone figure surf-casting on a rock off Chocomount Beach. There are many young men, both friends and relatives, who were taught by John and owe their fishing prowess to him.
Mr. Chestnut is survived by his wife of 21 years Tomassina (Massint); a brother, Theodore Arasimowicz of Wethersfield, CT; two sisters, Melen Zito and Anne Wall, both of Fishers Island.
Donations may be made in his memory to the Fishers Island Fire Department of the Fishers Island Sea Stretcher.
