  • Art will be greatly missed. He has been a neighbour to the family for many years. He always was such a happy nice guy. We always enjoyed talking to him. He was amazing trap shooter, and always open to give Dean advice about guns. He loved farming and if he saw you while he was out plowing, he would always stop and talk to you. We will keep Mary, Elora and Douglas in our prayers. He was an amazing person and our thoughts are with all of you.
