Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I was able to reconnect with Art after our family reunion. My brother Brian and cousin John , made arrangements to meet for lunch semi-regularly and talk about old times . We had lost touch for many years and I was glad that I had this time to learn about his life and family. I was sorry to see his health problems slowing him down over the last few year but it never stopped him from making time to meet up with us. My condolences to his family, he was a great guy and going to miss him and his stories which were our family history. Rest in peace cousin. - Posted by: Paul Johnson (cousin ) on: Nov 27, 2023

  • My life intersected with Art’s when he was married to Audrey. He and his entire family were great to be around. He was my Math teacher in Glenboro. Two memories I want to share. The first, I applied for a job delivering groceries for the local Co-Op store. I got the job but had fibbed during my interview stating that I could drive a manual transmission. Art lent me his pick up so I could practice in the short time I had to make my statement true by the time I had my first shift. The other is about several times Art and family hosted us at their cottage near Ingolf. Those were truly fun times for us. Art, you were a joy to be around. - Posted by: Carlos Vialard (Student and friend) on: Nov 04, 2023
