Arthur Leroy "Art" Noyes Sr.

July 1, 1926 - August 15, 2016

Arthur L. Noyes (Art), Sr, 90, passed away on Aug 15, 2016 at Sentara Virginia Beach General. He spent his last days surrounded by his loving family. Art was born on July 1, 1926 in Kane, PA. He is predeceased by his wife of 57 years, Mary Hussey Noyes. Left to cherish his memory are his children Arthur L. Noyes, Jr (Charlotte), Pamela Williams (Jerry), and Christina Zotto (Michael); his grandchildren Tom, Jessie, Geoff, Lauren, Rachel and Amanda; and great-grandchildren Quinn, Alexandra, Oliver and Lucas.

Art served his country in the US Navy for almost 30 years. As part of the “Greatest Generation,” he joined the Navy at the age of 17 during WWII. His naval career took him all over the world and eventually to Newfoundland, Canada where he met and married the love of his life, Mary Hussey.

Art was a truly remarkable man of many talents. He loved reading about how things worked and could fix almost anything. His favorite projects included working on cars, woodworking and puzzles of all kinds. Most of all, Art loved his family. He will be greatly missed.

There will be a memorial service on Friday, August 19, 6:00 pm at Altmeyer Funeral Home Southside located 5792 Greenwich Road, Virginia Beach.

Art and Mary will be interned at Arlington National Cemetery with full military honors at a later date.
