Art was a lifelong dairy and crop farmer and the rewards he reaped from his fields were second only to the strong roots he cultivated in his children and family. He was a proud Veteran of the U.S. Army. Each year of his life he found joy tending to his impressive garden and playing rousing games of cards with his family and friends. He spent many wonderful winters in Florida with his wife, family and friends. He loved spending time with the "boys" at hunting camp in the southern tier.
