- August 05, 2006

BREWER - Retired USAF Master Sgt. Arthur S. Heath, husband of Dorothy Royal Heath for 57 years, peacefully passed away Aug. 5, 2006, surrounded by his family. Art was born April 30, 1920, in Lakeview Plantation, to William S. and Elizabeth M. Heath. He proudly served his country for 30 years in the U.S. Air Force as a machinist and welder. A veteran of World War II, Korea, and Vietnam, he served 34 months in the South Pacific during World War II, 18 months in Korea and 12 months at Tan Son Nhut AB in Vietnam. During his career, Art sacrificed time away from his family to faithfully and admirably serve his nation and fellow airmen until his honorable discharge as a decorated veteran in 1972. He continued his service to his community by carrying out a 10-year career at the Bangor Post Office. Retirement life kept him just as busy as he was an avid fisherman and hunter. His favorite pastime was fishing trout with his family and friends. Arthur is survived by his children, Pam and Jim Hoodenpyle of Pleasant Hope, Mo., Mike Heath of Brewer, Scott and Kathi Heath of Veazie, Tom and Cathy Heath of Fayetteville, N.C.; his grandchildren, Kimberly, Jimbo, Adam, Kelli, Kristi and Samantha; along with five great-grandchildren. Special mention to Billy Heath, Bobby and Gail Russell, Raymond Pawlendzio and family, and Danny and Bonnie Avery. As a footnote, his children and grandchildren would like to add their personal gratitude for being a loving father and grampy. It was always a comfort to look out on the sidelines, in the stands or in the audience to see his love and support. His unconditional love, warm hugs and big heart will never be forgotten. He was and always will be our rock to lean on. Visitation will be 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 8, at Kiley Funeral Home, 69 State St., Brewer. A celebration of his life will be held afterward, with long-time family friend Pastor Carl Schreiber presiding. Arthur will be laid to rest with military honors 11 a.m. Aug. 9, at Evergreen Cemetery, Milo. In lieu of flowers, the family has requested donations be sent to support Home Health and Hospice of St. Joseph, American Cancer Society or any veterans organization.
