Arthur F. McAllister, 78, of Simsbury, beloved husband of Barbara (Frattini) McAllister, passed away on March 22, 2015, surrounded by his family. Born and raised in Barre, VT, he was the son of the late Rowe and Libby (Catto) McAllister. He graduated from Spaulding High School in 1954, Burdett College in Boston, class of 1956, where he was also a member of Delta Nu Omega Fraternity, and the University of Hartford, Class of 1960. Art was also a Veteran of the 3rd US Infantry Regiment (The Honor Guard) Washington DC, 1956-1958. After his discharge he went to work for the Hartford National Bank and Trust then was employed at the Aetna followed by a lengthy career at IBM. After his retirement in 1987, he turned his lifelong love of flying into a second career as a private pilot and flight instructor. This allowed him to pursue his passion for flying and soaring along with his love for travel and making new friends. He was an avid golfer and was a member of the Country Club of Barre and Simsbury Farms Golf Course where he won ten club championships along with numerous other titles. He also won the club championship at Rockledge Country Club in 1968. However, none of those titles meant as much to him as a recent golf trip to Ireland with his sons and grandson. Art also enjoyed cycling and loved exploring the Vermont countryside during the summers he spent living in Huntington and Montpelier. Besides his wife Barbara, he leaves two sons Scott A. McAllister, and his wife Sandra of Williston, VT, and Bryan J. McAllister and his significant other Karen Myette of Natick, MA; two grandchildren William and Katherine McAllister of Williston, VT; his brother Robert S. McAllister and his wife Dorothy of Windsor; a sister Joan Hurwitz of Bloomfield; a niece, Stephanie of Collingswood, NJ, nephews Kevin McAllister of Windsor, VT and Neil McAllister of Arlington, VA. His family will receive friends Saturday, April 18, 2015 from 1- 2PM followed by a Celebration of his Life at 2:00 PM at the Carmon Funeral Home & Family Center, 301 Country Club Road, Avon. A reception will follow. Contributions may be made to either Foodshare 45 Woodland Avenue, Bloomfield, CT 06002 or in his memory.
