Arthur James TACY

(December 29, 1914-August 25, 2013)

«...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 4 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 PacificTheatre. 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 January 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.»
