It’s hard to put in words. Art was an amazing guy who would do anything to help. Art was a funny guy, who always kept me laughing. He even gave us both nicknames Dirk and Vanessa. You will be missed Dirk. Rest In Peace my friend and continue to watch over us.

It's hard to put into words how I feel about Art. We had a lot of good times and even more good laughs. There was never a dull moment with Art. He was smart, funny, and easy to get along with...as long as you had a tough shell. He kept it real all the time. He was well loved and very respected. Art was a great man and will be truly missed by all who knew him.

ART was so nice and kind. I have known ART since 2004 working with him through two company's always laughing and joking when we had free time. ART always knew how to put a smile on your face. I'm going to miss the conversations and laughter from him, he was one of the best coworkers that I have had the pleasure of working with. RIP ART YOU WAS THE BEST.
