To Artie and Family. So sorry to hear about your dad’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time.

Very sorry to hear of Arts passing. I remember Art from when he would go to my dads. Paddy. Alot of talk on hunting. Art was a very gentle man.
Thinking of all the family. Rest easy Art.

Saddened to hear of your loss. Our prayers and thoughts are with you all at this time.

To Lorraine, Art Jr, Joy, The Snow and Oliver Families. Sorry to hear about Art’s passing. Always cherish your memories of Art. My memory of Art will be how he always would play the ” Land and Sea ” theme song especially if he were on his geological walk while in Burnt Point

Lorraine and family,
We are saddened to hear of Art’s passing. I remember visiting your home with Mom. We sat on your deck enjoying warm sunshine, tea, and the company of longtime family friends in our old neighbourhood.. Art proudly showed us some of his woodworking crafts. May your many memories of your life together bring you comfort and warmth.

Aunt Lorraine, Joy, Artie and family, I am very sorry to hear about Uncle Art. My thoughts are with you all at this time.

Dear Lorraine and your beautiful family, Phyllis and I want to assure you of our love and prayers at this special time in your lives. God is great and has a great divine plan for each of you and as you trust Him may you be comforted with this knowledge. I have many great memories of my buddy relationship with Art!! We played guitars, went trouting, went on bike trips, and cut fire wood together. How we wish we could be there for his celebration of life service, but that is not possible now.. God bless you all richly. May His grace enrich you and His peace possess you always.
Love Ted & Phyllis Percy

My Dearest Aunt Lorraine, Joy, Artie and family. I am so saddened by the loss
of a wonderful man that I am proud to call my Uncle. Some of my fondest childhood
memories were spent with you all. You were not only an amazing Uncle to Randy,
Sterling and myself but you were also an wonderful brother to Mom and of course
the relationship you had with my Dad was so very special. You were not just a
brother in law to him. My heart and soul are there with you all at this time.

“For if we live, we live to the Lord,
and if we die, we die to the Lord.
So then, whether we live or die,
we are the Lord’s.”
~Romans 14:8

All our love
Kelly, Carm, Peter and Jacob

Lorraine, Joy, Art and family.
We were saddened to hear of Art’s passing. As Marilyn and I reminisced, we remember how kind and loving Art was. Although there was not much of an age difference between him and our parents, he always called them Aunt and Uncle showing them love and respect. Lorraine, It was at Aunt Eva’s funeral that we all got together. and I will cherish the time we spent chatting and remembering the times you and Art spent with Mom and Dad. Even throughout the years Art was always willing and able to help Dad when he needed it especially when something went wrong with the plumbing. Mom and Dad always said Art was the best.
Although we can’t be with you as you remember and celebrate Art’s life please be assured that you are in our thoughts and prayers. We love you all!
Marilyn, Cathy and Stephanie.

Donna, Artie and famy. So sorry for your loss. I cant even imagine what you going through. I only met you dad a couple of times and he was always very kind and a bit of a joker. I remember the speech he gave at your wedding while the cake was being cut and plated to serve. He distracted us all very well. Thinking of you. Hugs Sharon and Mike.

Saddened to hear of Art’s passing. Sorry we can’t be with you but be assured you will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Working with Art was such a pleasure. He welcomed me as part of his family and I enjoyed the hours we spent together with him strumming his old Martin Guitar and singing.

So sorry to hear about the passing of your father. Condolences to the family.

Art Donna and family
Sorry to hear about your fathers passing Our thoughts and prayers are with you at this time Cherish the memories
