    We are so sorry to hear of Art’s passing. He was our “upstairs” neighbor for many years. Art was definitely one of the good ones, and we have some great memories. (Along with his carpentry skills, he made the best pizza and chicken soup.) Please accept our condolences, and know that our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time.

    A beloved and beautiful human being. I will remember him fondly showing up in our driveway on random Saturday mornings on his Harley. My heart goes out to those who were closest to him.

    We are so very sorry to hear your Uncle Art has passed away. We always enjoyed seeing him at the family gatherings or running into him at the store, when he was on his motorcycle. Always seemed happy. What a beautiful family, he was surrounded by love. May it bring all of us comfort to know that being absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. You’re in our thoughts and daily prayers. We love all of you with our whole hearts. Aunt Chris, Uncle Rainer and Nonna
