I’ve heard so many co-workers share in the past few days that Art was the one who hired included. Thanks for the opportunities Art! You had a huge impact on our Delta family. You will be missed. Condolences to your family.

I will remember that Art always found time to help and listen. He was a mentor as a professional and friend. Art was dependable and you could count on him to be there for bowling, softball or fishing, willing to work on my car or going out to cut firewood with Michael. If he said he would be there, he was. He’ll truly be missed by all that knew him. Larry Gil

Sometimes he was the big brother, sometimes the father, always important, always fair and caring to his Delta family in Tampa Res.
He will be missed by many.

I have a beautiful memory of Art driving in his truck with his arm around his son’s back. Such a loving gesture. May you Rest In Peace. 🙏

Art was so good to me. He gave me the courage to keep working at it. He told me about the boy growing up in rural, poor Kentucky . He was special. RIP friend
