Notes for Arza Sherman BOYLE

From the Lintlaw history book:

He went to Winnipeg at an early age to study radio (in the 1920’s). He was given a radio to assemble on his return. For the family this was a first and many neighbors came to hear the news and weather forecasts.

After marrying Mary in 1934, they lived on his father’s homestead (James had already passed away by this time). In the early 1940’s they moved to Lintlaw where he owned the garage. He also took care of “Big Bertha”, the light plant that served the town with electricity. He sold the garage and started a radio shop, selling and repairing radios. When Sask. Power came through, Arza was busy wiring homes and farmsteads. About this time he started a T.V. shop, being the first in Lintlaw to have a television set in 1954. He then started selling and repairing TV sets along with his radio service.

His wife Mary too was in business, doing a variety of sewing for various customers. They sold car driver licenses for many years. In 1962 he moved his TV and radio business to Preeceville. He carried on this business until his death in January 1975. His sons Howard and Edgar continued on this business for awhile after his death.

Died of a stroke.

He was still living with his parents James and Mary in the RM of Hazel Dell in the 1926 Saskatchewan census.
