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!
