My friend Sarah and I always enjoyed going to the Christmas Cottage Boutique as Art would be there. I bought many of his note cards with envelopes with the Collinsville Ax factory scene on it that he had done. Remarkable how well he had done this, and we so enjoyed talking with him as he would show us ones that he had done and others that he had enjoyed doing.
What a pleasure it always was to see his smile when we approached him, for he was such a gracious thoughtful insightful man.
I was just looking for a good friends memorial posting last night and happened to see Art’s here. I am so glad I saw this. I was wondering how he was with all that went on this year. I am ever thankful for his encouraging me to start painting again. He was a real blessing to Sarah and me. Sending many blessing to his family during these months ahead. Matthew 11:28,
Sarah and I will surely miss him, Laurie Holden

Sad to hear of Art's passing. We shared many great times together. Many after George's Softball games or off season team parties. He will be missed!!
