    Dear June Ann and Family

    Please accept our heartfelt condolences. We were so privileged to have had you as neighbors, blessed to have continued our friendship and honored to have given Art the honorary title of “Grandpa Art” to our boys. We will treasure all that Art has taught us and will deeply miss his stories and humor. He was very special to us. A void will certainly be left in our hearts.

    Dear June Ann, and Family…. We are saddened to learn of Art’s Passing.

    We met you both when first moving to Haysboro in the mid-1990’s, as you were then part of a group of several existing Long-Term Neighbors who made us ‘Newcomers’ feel warmly welcome. Our Hope is that you may find some comfort in knowing that you and Art had made such a lasting Impression upon us.

    Mrs. Ryan, Susan, Rob, Kelly and Dan,

    So sorry to hear of your loss. I trust that the great memories you treasure in your heart will sustain you in the difficult days ahead. All of my memories of your dad/husband come back when I remember all of the humorous encounters I enjoyed with him collecting for the Calgary Herald as your paperboy, riding in the green Chrysler New Yorker to play minor hockey games, his generosity in paying my way into Calgary Centennial hockey games and the general good natured ribbing he directed my way when I chummed with Rob in our teen years. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
