    Good friend. Shot several Grand's and Minnesota State Shoots with Art. He loved Vandalia and his parking spot next to the grandstand. Blessings to the family. Glenn

    I spent some time with Art on the chain shoots in Az. Art was a good man that could not stand to see a STS or a AA hull get put in the garbage. He loved his cigars and I loved being around him when he was smoking them. I will miss the old guy. Trevor Dawe

    Art was a dedicated shooter and approached everything with the precision of the engineer that he was. Enjoyed shooting with him in Arizona and at several Grands. We'll miss him.

    I am so saddened to hear this. I have known Art since I started trapshooting in the 70's and used to call him "Uncle Art". I know he will be missed by all including his many AZ and winter chain friends. My sincere condolences to his family. Betty Sackett

    We have many wonderful memories about Art and Pat - we used to park next to them on the front line in Vandalia. LOVED those cigars! Art was one of a kind guy - we gave him emptys just to hear Pat complain. Art will be missed.

    Have any arrangements been made yet? Please post them when someone knews.

    Any idea if there is a funeral in addition to this or is this the formal memorial gathering for Art? Glenn

    The Monday gathering is the formal memorial. The burial details are being finalized, but it looks like it will be a smaller farewell attended by the family.
