Arthur J. Armstrong, 78, of Marshfield, died Aug. 24, 2011. Born and raised in Weymouth, Arthur attended UMass Stockbridge Agricultural School prior to being drafted into the U.S. Army. He was most proud of his service in the Korean War as a member of the military police. Arthur was a loyal employee of Polaroid for 28 years, and took early retirement to work with his two sons at Armstrong Fence Co. He was known for his quick wit and big heart. The ultimate Mr. Gadget, Arthur had a passion for reconstructing almost anything he could get his hands on, convinced he would make a better mouse-trap. He is survived by the love of his life, after 57 years of marriage, Claire (ONeill). He was the ultimate father to Gail Taylor and her husband, Brian, Paul Armstrong and his wife Clare (Babineau) and David Armstrong and his wife Catherine (Cilento). He adored his grandchildren, Nicholas and his wife Krissy, James, Megan, Grace, Rose, David, Olivia, John, Harrison, and Papas sweetheart, Julia. He was also blessed to have been a great-grandfather to Sophie.
