  1. So sorry Ginny and family. Art was a joy and a blessing to know these many years. He will be missed. Art was very instrumental in starting and growing my business. More importably, he was a great friend and confidant since we met in 1978. I know he was loved by many people all over the country.
    God Bless

  2. One of the great men in my life as I grew up. All those camping trips and scouting events. Never realized how much at the time we were learning from him, it all just seemed like just fun. Art, you will be sorely missed. Mrs. McPhee, Pat, Kelly, Erin, always know, I will always consider you part of my family.

  3. Ginny and family. I nearly fell out of my chair when i got the call a few minutes ago about us loosing Art. A great man who loved to help the youth. This “Fat Man On Bike” (my nick name from one summer camp) will always remember and cherish those memories while out camping with the Boy Scouts. I learned a lot, Art learned a lot and I know the Boys really learned about life from Art’s interaction with them. My prayers are with you all as we remember what a wonderful man Art is and how his memory will live on.

  11. Dearest Ginny, Pat, Kelly, Erin, and Every Member of your family,

    We will miss Art immeasureably, and our hearts go out to you all in the loss of him. We know this has been a difficult journey for everyone and we will miss him for the rest of our lives, for he was a devoted husband, father, family member and friend. Art was extraordinary! Ever since we became your delighted neighbors in 1976, you and Art have always been a joy to be around. Art has always had a knack for lifting our spirits with his great sense of humor, his delightful stories, and his zest for life. He will be greatly missed.
    We will never forget his joyful countenance, the cardgames, the Irish Rover songs, and the good times he gave us. Thank you, Art! This upcoming March 17th, St. Patrick’s Day, especially, will be bittersweet because our favorite Irishman is no longer with us.
    Love, Karen, Carl, Kimberly, and Russ

  14. DEAR GINNY AND FAMILY,
    DALE AND I HOLD DEAR ALL OF OUR GREAT ESCAPES WITH YOU AND ART. HE LEAVES A HOLE IN OUR HEARTS AND WE WILL TREASURE ALL OF THE MEMORIES WE HAVE WITH HIM. DALE SPOKE WITH MIKE BURNETTE LAST NIGHT AND I BELIEVE MIKE PUT IT THE MOST ACCURATELY BY DESCRIBING ART AS “HAVING ART WITH YOU WAS LIKE SITTING AT THE CAPTAIN’S TABLE WHERE YOU KNEW YOU WOULD BE TAKEN CARE OF.” HE WAS THE BEST AND THE SMARTEST MAN I KNOW AND ALWAYS WILL BE. WE LOVE YOU ALL.

  15. Our heartfelt sympathy to Ginny and family.

    Art was such a special person. He was not only a good friend but a mentor. He was always a joy to be around. He was a great storyteller — we always loved his stories — and boy did he have some! He is truly going to be missed by his “Florida Gang”. He was loved by all who knew him.

    Although words cannot begin to ease the sorrow of your loss, please know that you are in the thoughts and prayers of so many who care.

  16. Dear Ginny, our hearts go out to you & your family. We will always remember the wonderful times playing cards. We enjoyed his wit & his great stories. We will miss him. God bless you & your family.

  17. Ginny, I am so sorry for your loss. Art was truly unique and so loved by everyone. I loved working with Art years ago. He was one of the best.

  18. I’m sorry for you loss. Art was a man that touched the lives of many. I know the wound from his death is something that you all will not get over easily. There is a scripture that givea me comfort in times like thisand that I hope it will comfort you at times like these. It is found at John 5: 28, 29. Read it and find comfort. My condolences to your entire family.
