Art dedicated 30 years of his life to General Motors, culminated in a well-earned retirement on land he had loved since he was a boy. An avid outdoorsman, he loved to hunt, fish, and walk the trails of his property. He enjoyed having family and friends over where he played the guitar, sang songs, and played euchre. He loved animals and always took in the strays. To his family he was our Superman and as we bid farewell, we hold onto the love he gave everyone who came into his life.
