I am so sorry to hear this news, it definitely has made me super sad. I worked for Art for so many years, running advanced recycling with him. My favorite memory will always be us going to watch the 49er/Steeler game at Candlestick. It dumped buckets of rain so much that it looked like a river with waterfalls. Drinking, eating, and having a blast. Art drove an RV to the game so that a bunch of friends could go to the game. Charlie and I were 49er fans and he was a Steeler fan through and through. I also remember the Skelton dressed in Steelers gear sitting on Art's shoulder at the time. It was hilariously fun. We had such a great time!! I don't remember who won, I just know we all had a great time. I do have that picture somewhere. RIP Art.
Kara and kids I am so sorry for your loss.
