LEOMINSTER, MA -- Arthur Everett Lyman reportedly passed away on Sunday, Feb. 3rd, at Life Care Center in Leominster, MA. Arthur was born in Vulcan, Alberta on Feb. 27th, 1921.

 
He is survived by, his sisters Mary E. Kent of Kent, WA and Laura M. Engbrecht of Seatac, WA, his sons Arthur E. Lyman, Jr. and Catherine Butera of Dobbs Ferry, NY, and Peter S. Lyman and Carole Carnovale of Mendon, MA, his grandson William Pica of Dobbs Ferry, NY, and numerous nieces and nephews.
 
Lyman graduated from the United States Merchant Marine Academy (Kings Point) in 1943. During WWII he served as an engineer on numerous merchant ships that provided supplies to both the European and Pacific theatres. Post-war he continued to sail, and he obtained his chief engineer's license before beginning his long career as a salesman in the marine industry. Arthur lived in Ardsley, NY for 45 years until he retired from Unitor Corp. in 1998, and moved to Leominster, MA. Arthur was an avid skier, and he generously shared this activity with his friends and family, remaining active into his mid-eighties.
 
The funeral was scheduled to be held on Saturday Feb. 9, 2013, but was postponed to Monday February 11 due to the snow storm in the region. The burial is private. In lieu of flowers the family requests that expressions of sympathy be made by memorial donation to Milford Humane Society, Milford, MA (www.milfordhumane.org) or another worthy cause.
