Arthur George Lennon, 92, of Lovell, passed away on Tuesday, December 11, 2018 at the North Big Horn Hospital.

Art was born August 7, 1926 to Thomas N. Lennon and Mary W. (Burns) Lennon in Union Hospital, Lavoye, Wyoming. The family moved from Lavoye to Sunburst, Montana, while working for Continental Oil Company, until the outbreak of World War II. They then moved to Portland, Oregon to work for Oregon Shipbuilding Company, where Art was employed for two years, working nights, while attending Roosevelt High School. He enlisted in the U.S. Navy at age 17, and completed basic training at Camp Farragut, Idaho and Gunnery School at Camp Bennion, Idaho. Upon graduation he was assigned to duty on the USS Saratoga, an aircraft carrier in the Pacific Theater.

After the war, the family moved to Lovell and Art was employed by Montana Dakota Utilities/Williston Basin Pipeline for 40 years, retiring in 1988.

In January 2013, Art slipped on ice and broke his right hip and arm and was unable to walk again. He was a resident of New Horizons Care Center for the past six years.

He was an active member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church and a lifetime member of the American Legion.

Art loved bird hunting and fly fishing and had many trophies for golf and bowling. He always had a beautiful garden, raising many vegetables only to give to friends and passersby. His yard and home were always well kept.

He will be remembered for his kindness, friendliness, and willingness to help. He was always a gentleman, never complained, or had anything bad to say about anyone.

He was preceded in death by his parents.  He is survived by a cousin, Audrey Spencer of Annandale, Virginia. Cremation has taken place.

Services will be held at St. Joseph's Catholic Church on Friday, December 21, at 10:30 a.m. A Rosary will be held at 7 p.m., Thursday, December 20, at the church.
