We used to live at Atwood lake and I often pulled Art's pontoon out for him come winter time. Always received some baked goods for doing it,! Good memories! May God rest his soul.

Great Uncle Art will be missed for so many reasons, his kind smile and big hugs at the top of my list. He is home now with Aunt Myrt, where we will all meet again. Prayers and peace for his family!
