  • Speechless and stunned! I am so sorry to hear about Arty. A smile always came to my face when I heard the roar of his plane come to rest in front of his hanger in Goodyear Arizona. I will always look 3 doors down and see you smiling ear to ear. Rest in Peace Arty. - Posted by: Stephen Lauritano (Friend) on: Mar 22, 2017
