He enjoyed camping, gardening and fishing, and served on numerous boards over the years. Art was known for his attention to detail, exceptional organizational skills, administration abilities and his deep love for his wife and four daughters.

Art was predeceased by both his brothers Homer and Larry; and his step-siblings Allan Edwards and Beth Duff.

The family would like to thank the Doctors and nurses in the Strathmore Hospital; the wonderful homecare girls, who took such good care of Dad; the staff at the Wheatland Lodge; and the many friends and neighbours who went the extra mile to love and care for him in his later years. We are so grateful for your kindness to Mom and Dad.

    Our sincere sympathy to you and your family in the loss of your dear husband, father and grandfather. We have just returned from a visit to Sedgewick and noticed again the beautiful trees that Art had planted on the golf course there. It has provided years of beauty and shade since the 1960’s. He was a very kind and considerate person and we’ve always admired his love of family and his faith in God. Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
