Arthur Tacy

DANNEMORA — Arthur Tacy, 98, of Thayer Avenue, went home to be with the Lord Sunday, August 25, 2013 at CVPH Medical Center in Plattsburgh, with his family at his side.

He was born in Dannemora on Dec. 29, 1914, the son of Wilfred and Myrtle (Bull) Tacy.

Art's dad died when Art was just a teenager and he stepped up and went to work at the Dannemora State Hospital to support his mother and four siblings. He married the love of his life, Eileen Beauchemin on June 21, 1941 in Redford. They enjoyed 72 years of marriage. Art was called to serve our country in 1943 and was a World War II veteran, serving in the Pacific Theatre. As part of the US 10th Army, he was involved in many large battles including the Battle of Okinawa. He received many medals including the WWII Victory Medal and was honorably discharged on Jan. 14, 1946. Art returned to his previous employment as a correction officer at the State Hospital and retired in 1971, after 35 years of service.

Art was a communicant of St. Joseph's Church, a member of the VFW and American Legion Post #0852. He was also a former member of the Dannemora Fire Department and past tax assessor for the Village of Dannemora.

Until his sight diminished, Art was never one to sit still. He spent many hours caning and refinishing chairs, and mass-producing countless wood working projects that he generously shared with others. He also enjoyed playing cards, bowling in leagues, golf, cooking (especially chili and cabbage rolls), camping with his family, and visiting with others. His quick mind and great wit stayed with him until the end. In his easy-going way, he would say: "When I die, just tell them I was a good guy." Art-you were a GREAT guy!

Art was predeceased by his parents; brothers, Robert and Carl Tacy; sisters, Grace Martin and Rita Baker.
