  1. My deepest condolences to the family. I had worked with Art most of his many years on Rock Island Arsenal. Art had also been the president of the IA-IL NDIA Chapter for many years and remained active on the corporate board. As the current president of the Chapter, we intend to make a donation to the VVA in Art’s honor.

  2. I had the pleasure of serving with Art on the Board of the Rock Island Arsenal Chapter of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA). During the years I knew Art, he dedicated much of his time and effort to making the lives of disabled, disenfranchised, and hospitalized Veterans as cheerful and comfortable as possible. I will remember Art as a true patriot; one who believed in his country; rallied to the support of those who defended it; always placed the needs of others before his own. An unselfish man by any measure. —- Rest in peace Art…the example you set for us lives on!
