Arthur E. French III
Arthur E. French III passed away suddenly on Sept. 30, 2013, in Red Lodge. He was 49 years old, born on July 19, 1964, in Bryn Mawr, Penn. He was called Beau by his family and Boz by his friends in Montana and New Jersey, where he spent most of his life. He is survived by his mother, Sandra Rhodes of Palm Coast, Fla., his three sisters, Wendy Carver of Wellesley, Mass., Kerry Corvino of Vero Beach, Fla., and Stacey Britt of Sag Harbor, N.Y. and six nephews and nieces. His father Arthur E. French Jr. and stepfather Frank B. Rhodes, predeceased him. Boz attended the Milburn, N.J., public schools and graduated from Marvelwood School in Cornwall, Conn. He attended Kean College in N.J. Boz was a sweet gentle man who loved being with family and friends. His passion since he was little was fishing wherever he could find a body of water. His close friend, Chris Prindeville, now living in Red Lodge and the reason Boz was residing there, remembers him putting a rod in Chris’ hand when they were very young. Boz’s family of friends in Red Lodge especially enjoyed his wonderful stories and great salmon spread. We will all miss Beau/Boz terribly and pray that he is in a better place. Please join us at The Snag Bar for a celebration of Boz’s life and friendship, Friday, Oct. 18, 2013, from 11 a.m. – 2 a.m., for free pool all day and a potluck dinner from 5 p.m. – 7 p.m.
