Art was only our neighbor for less than a year, but his zest for life brought us joy every day. We loved waking up in the morning and seeing him reading the NY Post and painting his deck from his wheelchair. It was obvious from the short time we knew him that he was a special person. We were blessed to know him. We will miss him. Condolences to his entire family. RIP Art.

You will truly be missed, aboard the Carolyn Ann lll. Arty was more then a customer, he made friends while fishing and everyone enjoyed fishing with him.

I always enjoyed meeting with Mr. Hoyt during tax season. He always had a smile on his face. Our conversations regularly gravitated to his daughters and grandchildren, all of whom he was proud of. Mr. Hoyt loved to talk about fishing and the stock market both of which he was very astute in. He will be missed. My deepest sympathies to the family.

Uncle Art was a funny and talented guy. I remember fishing with him as a kid, and of course, his love of Budweiser! He will be missed. Our deepest condolences to the family.
