II, Art spent 38 years as a Parts Manager for a Kitchener Ford dealership.  He was a founding and active member of Reformation Lutheran Church in Kitchener.  He loved to travel.  An enthusiastic dancer, Art continued well into his 80’s.  Woodworking was a favourite pastime and passion as evidenced by the multitude of his projects.
