    This comes as a sad surprise to me, because honestly, I was sure Art was immortal. I could write a book about his goodness - class act of class acts, and kindest man on earth. I will miss him, but the influence of a man like that, lasts forever.

    All my life I referred to this wonderful man as uncle Bill. He was my dads dearest friend so all of my memories of the outdoors and hunting include him. As with all who knew him I will miss him terribly.
