We were so sorry to hear about Art. He was my first supervisor in Sacramento post office in 1989. He helped and guided me numerous times during my postal career. My husband Patrick was very fond of him also. Some people thought Art was kind of tough, probably from his military days, but I will remember him as kind & thoughtful. He was so proud of his military career, as he should have been, always showed up in his full military uniform for any military related ceremony at the post office. He was so proud of his family , he would talk about them frequently. I haven't seen Art in years, but would usually call around Christmas. We are so sorry for your loss. May you rest in peace Art!
