Art was a veteran of the US Marines and served in Korea.
Art loved his farm and sharing it with family. His most cherished times were family 4-wheeler rides, hayrides, mushroom hunting and spending time at the creek. Art got an A+ on every leaf project the grandkids ever turned in at school. The grandkids were his pride and joy. Art’s devotion as a care-giver to his wife, Colleen, taught us all the true meaning of “for better, or for worse.” He was a role model for us all.
