Can't forget Art when we first moved into 62 The Crescent. Him and his wife Jean, were in their driveway waiting for us to move in. They were the "welcoming committee". Over the years, my family and I got to know Art and his wife Jean. We got to know him for the very proud, protective and loving man he was of his wife, family, friends and accomplishments. Will never forget him for helping my Mom in her time of need with my son, her grandson. I was honored for being apart of his 100 year birthday celebration at Jackie's before he left for North Carolina. Will never forget his smile. It could light up a room. He was so happy! I'm glad that was my final memory of Art.

Art and Jean were good friends of my parents, Mary and Howard Leiner from Homestead Park. I was happy to send him a birthday card for his 💯 Birthday.

I am so sorry to hear of the passing of Art. He was my neighbor and friend for 18 years. My late husband and I had many conversations with him and Jean. He was a very special, caring man who was loved by all. He was always ready to talk with you and many discussions took place sitting in his driveway. I remember so clearly when I was diagnosed with cancer and my grandson Jeremy was about 5 years old. It was a bitter winter. I had to walk my grandson across the street to catch the bus. One early morning my doorbell rang. There was Art all bundled up. He said to me "are you out of your mind"?. Why are you going out in this cold. I will come every day to put Jeremy on the bus. And he was faithful to his word. Such an incredible man - such a wonderful legacy he leaves behind.
I know this for sure - The Lord said to him "Well done my faithful servant. Welcome to my heavenly kingdom I have prepared for you. Rest in peace my dear friend. I will never forget you.
My condolences to his two sons and their wives and his grandchildren. He loved you all very much.
