  1. Dad was my hero. The only man in my life who never let me down. He was a kind, generous, loving father. I will miss him forever. Rest in peace and say hello to Mom now.

  2. I remember so many times at Grandma’s house, Uncle Art playing a beautiful piece on the piano. He was so talented and brought so much to those family gatherings. I’ll miss his smile and gentle nature. Rest, in much deserved, peace. Love to you always!

  3. Art was a true gentleman and patriot. Ron Gowac and I both just loved to converse with him when he lived in Pond Hollow in Hamden. Rest in peace dear Art. Now you and your lovely bride, Helen can trip the light fantastic. Nettie Lees and Ron Gowac
