Arthur W. Carle, Jr., 86

December 26, 1934 - April 28, 2021

With heavy hearts, the family of Arthur W. Carle, Jr. announce his passing to the "happy hunting grounds in the sky" on April 28, 2021.

Artie was born December 26, 1934 to Martha (Boyle) and Arthur Carle, Sr. Arthur Carle, Sr. Artie was raised in Butte and attended Butte Public Schools. He participated in football and baseball in his younger years. From an early age Artie enjoyed the outdoors and was an avid Hunter, fisherman and trapper.

Artie married the love of his life, Judy Metz, June 8, 1957. Their life long union was one of love and respect. They shared a beautiful life together for nearly 64 years.

Their marriage was blessed with three beautiful children, Pam, Mike and Julie.Artie lived in Butte his entire life. He worked for the Butte, Anaconda Pacific (BAP) Railroad for 37 years. During that time he met many colorful characters in the Butte/Anaconda vicinity.

The loyalty and dedication that Artie showed toward his family was equally on display as he earned a 35 yr service pin from the Anaconda Company. The pin represented 35 years of service without missing a shift of work.

Artie was blessed with many great gifts, one being the ability to tell stories. His children, grandchildren and great grandchild gathered around every chance they had to listen to his tales of Butte's finest characters as well as hunting and fishing. Each story ended in a roar of laughter as well as disbelief. His natural ability to make people laugh will remain so fondly in all our hearts. His one liners will live on forever! His biggest pleasure in life was his family. He always put family first. Artie was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He filled our lives with so much love and joy!! Your passing leaves a big void in our hearts. Your memory lives on with all of us.

We love you and Miss You! We look forward to seeing you again someday! You are our HERO!

Artie is survived by his loving wife Judy, daughter Pam (Tony) King, son Mike (Vicki) Carle, daughter Julie (Bob) Kent. Grandchildren; Jason Alexander, Britney (Shane) Carter, Chris (Erin) Alexander, Mason (Jenna) Carle, Peyton Carle, Travis (Beth) Harcharik, Justin (Renae) Harcharik, Kale (Grace) Pickett, Jake Pickett, Jake Pickett.

Artie was my partner on the BA&P railroad. He was a hard worker and my closest friend. My sympathy to the family. Don't stick your finger in God's mouth when he yawns Artie, RIP.

Met Artie and Judy when we moved our family to Walnut Street. I remember him running back and forth to Gramma's house next door - and always in his yard puttering. Am so very sorry to read of Artie's passing. Sincere condolences to Judy and kids during this most difficult time. Know you are in my thoughts tonight.
