  9. Always a gentleman, I will remember Art for his generosity and kindness. He is also responsible for my watch addiction and it was always fun to watch sports with Art. His enthusiasm was contagious. He will be missed.

    Over the years, Art has sent me (and many others) many beautiful emails: full of meaning, hope and beauty and I hope he would like this quote:

    With deepest sympathy & condolences to Arts family. Art was a longtime friend and visited us in Kelowna for golfing
    trips on several occasions. He will be sadly missed by ourselves and his many friends in Calgary. Art’s fun loving sense of humour and taking over as our Kelowna barbecue cook will always be remembered.

    I was saddened to hear of Art’s passing. He was one of the first people that I met when I moved to Calgary and worked down the hall at Dack’s in Bow Valley Square. I always enjoyed our conversations and the last time I saw him, he was driving his T-Bird and he smiled and waved as he drove by. My sincerest condolences to all his family and friends during this difficult time.

  17. I will never forget Art watching the Flames playoff run….there was a goal and Art was jumping up and down and screaming until I told him that Detroit was the “Red” team that night. A warm, generous man….

  18. This wonderful man was my biological father. I was conceived on a hot summer night in 1964 born on November 19th 1965 I was able to find him thanks to his mother and spoke to Art at various times. I Had the most wonderful adopted family. However, when I was diagnosed so young with aggressive thyroid cancer twice, then with breast cancer,again fast growing type 3 I needed to reach out. The information about the breast cancer needed to shared. This could of shaved someones life. It was no my intention to intrude.. Your father helped give me life, for that i truly am grateful,my only regret not getting to meet all of you.

    Sincerely
