Art had many friends throughout his life that he shared his love of fishing and water skiing with. Art called himself a lumber jack and always enjoyed being out amongst the trees, eventually becoming a sought-after saw filer. Art helped instill in his children a love for the outdoors and to be kind to animals. He was handy and could fix just about anything and took great joy in a good deal, especially at a garage sale. Art loved to tease and had a good sense of humor. He will be missed by many, especially his children, grandchildren and great- grandchildren, and sister.
