Art was Warren's boss back in the 70's when they worked for OKI Electrical. When they used to drive the truck with no front end, yuu look out the front window and you are looking at the ground and the motor was in the floor between the seats. He was a great boss and it was fun working with and for him. Warren Hilton

Sending our condolences to the family. We still remember the wonderful week in the north woods of Wisconsin when we shared our cabin with Pat and Art. Blessings to all as you navigate this difficult but also very rich time in the life of your family.
