Arthur S. Boyle

1936 - 2020

Arthur S. Boyle, 83 years old of Bristol, WI, passed away peacefully on Monday August 3, 2020 at his home. He was born December 6, 1936 in Boston, MA, the son of the late Michael and Florence (neé Scollo) Boyle. After his childhood in Boston, Arthur spent his young adult life living near various military bases throughout the country. Arthur proudly served in the US Navy for over 26 years, happily retiring in 1980 as a Master Chief. Shortly after enlisting in 1953, Arthur met the love of his life, Barbara Ann Raine. On November 18, 1961, Arthur and Barbara were married in Swanton, Vermont. Following his military retirement, Arthur worked as a Branch Manager for Great Lakes Credit Union (North Chicago, IL), in the Patient Preservation Department of James A. Lovell Health Care Center (North Chicago, IL), and taught Financial Management for New Recruits through San Diego College. He was Past Commander for the Brandes Memorial VFW Post 8375 (Silver Lake, WI), a member of Schultz-Hahn American Legion Post (Silver Lake, WI), and the Lake County Marine Corps League #801. Arthur lived and breathed the Navy, and his achievements are greatly remembered and honored by his family. In his free time, Arthur loved golfing and cheering on all of Boston's sports teams, a devout fan of the Boston Red Sox and the New England Patriots. However, his greatest joy was spending time with his family. Arthur was devoted to his six grandchildren, attending every sporting event, dance recital, and school concert that they participated in. He can be remembered for his remarkable generosity and constant outpouring of love. His grandchildren meant the world to him.

Arthur is survived by his wife of nearly 59 years Barbara; three children: Kathleen (James) Ducey of Winthrop Harbor, IL, Mike (Mary) Boyle of Batavia, IL, and Holly Liddicoat of Johnsburg, IL; six grandchildren: Matthew, Patrick, Joshua, Hannah, Sarah, and Jack; a great-grandson Ezra; and many nieces, nephews, and friends. In addition to his parents, Arthur was preceded in death by three siblings: Thomas, James, and Christine.

RIP Shipmate
August 8, 2020
For over twenty six years
The Master Chief has stood the watch
While some of us were in our bunks at night
The Master Chief stood the watch
While some of us were in school learning our trade
The Master Chief stood the watch
Yes even before some of us were born into this world
The Master Chief stood the watch
In those years when the storm clouds of war were seen brewing on the horizon of history
The Master Chief stood the watch
Many times he would cast an eye ashore and see his family standing there
needing his guidance and help
needing that hand to hold during those hard times
But he still stood the watch
He stood the watch for over twenty six years
He stood the watch so that we, our families and
our fellow countrymen could sleep soundly in safety, Each and every night
knowing that a sailor stood the watch
Today we are here to say
'Shipmate... the watch stands relieved
Relieved by those You have trained ,Guided, and Led
Shipmate you stand relieved We have the watch..."
"Boatswain Standby to pipe the side...Shipmate's going Ashore"

Mr. Art (his nickname from my kids) was a wonderful man. He will be greatly missed. I will miss his idioms, helpful advice and sense of humor. His love for his family, friends and country was immeasurable. Rest in peace Mr. Art!
