SHAPLEIGH – Arthur Thomas Ingersoll 83, of Shapleigh, formerly Billerica Mass. passed away July 25, 2020 after a period of declining health.

Arthur was born on Sept. 3, 1936 in Medford Mass. Arthur was the oldest of eight children born to the late Elsie Love (Ingersoll) Proctor. He was raised in Arlington in Massachusetts until his marriage to Jacqueline Elizabeth (Mahoney) Ingersoll when they moved to Billerica, Mass.

Arthur’s career in defense contracting started at Raytheon, which was followed by a long distinguished career in manufacturing operations at Sanders Associates, now BAE Systems. Arthur was an independent self-sufficient person who would help anyone with anything but would not ask for help for himself.

Arthur retired to Shapleigh, where he designed and built his lakefront home on Moussam Lake. Arthur enjoyed tinkering with his many projects, fishing, snowmobiling and his annual golf outing with golf buddies from Sanders Associates.

Arthur is survived by former wife, Jacqueline Ingersoll; two sons, Wayne Ingersoll and his wife Adrienne from Auburn, N.H., Dale Ingersoll of Billerica, Mass., daughter, Roxanne Monk and her husband Scott from Manchester, N.H.; six grandchildren, Chad, Christopher, Ian, Jeff, Samantha and Tyler; four great-grandchildren, Eleanor Regina, Morgan Amelia, Payton, Riley.

Arthur also leaves brothers, Bill, Bernie and Bobby, sisters, Charlotte and Elizabeth.

Arthur was predeceased by his mother, Elsie; and sister Barbara, brother Charlie.

Arthur will be missed by his family and many friends from Massachusetts, Maine and New Hampshire
