We are both saddened to learn of Art’s passing. He and brother George were such a part of our family years ago. They did many home renovations for us as a young family with children. They were so patient with our young sons who always tried to help them. “Art & George” we’re an institution with all of us. We have many happy memories of those days.
Our sympathies go out you all.

Ruth, Dora, Gerald, David, Don and Ruth…….my most sincere condolences. So many fond memories of Art when we were growing up in the Old Pennywell Rd area. He was so kind and easygoing and all through the years it was always such a pleasure to be in his company.
