Art loved everything about the great outdoors including his life as a fisherman, hunter, woodsman and berry picker. He also loved indoor activities such as darts, playing cards and bingo. Everyone knows he loved his “scratch” tickets and his smokes!
For the last 13 years of his life Art lived with his sister Susan in West Bay. At this time, Art was included in all aspects of her family and their lives and the lives of his extended family. He and his sister Susan were company for each other and looked after each other in various ways. Already he is missed by everyone, especially his sisters Susan and Philomena.
Art’s family wish to thank the staff at The Sir Thomas Roddick Hospital and The Bay St. George Long Term Care facility for their superb care and attention given to Art and family members during his stay at the hospital and the Protective Care Unit.
