Art was among the best mentors I had in graduate school at U of I . We stayed in contact via email up until 21 days before his death. I am deeply saddened by his passing and I miss him so much. I will miss his words of encouragement, his humor and his beautiful pictures of Colorado and Illinois.
Enjoyed being a fellow graduate student with Art during our Cornell days in the mid-60s. Douglas T. Hawes
I was biking up in Waterton Canyon today. I always remember the story Art told about camping up there in his early years and heard the roar of a mountain lion which kept him up all night. He had such an adventurous spirit. I miss him a lot.
We so much enjoyed the jeep trip with Art in Aug 2011 and will always remember the beautiful pictures that he emailed with his holiday greetings. We will miss his warm and caring spirit as well as his wonderful sense of humor.
Art was a phenomenal, kind, gentle man with a great sense of humor. He loved to make people smile with his quick wit. Art's love for nature was so evident and he surrounded himself with the beauty of the Colorado Mountains in Ouray. He was a wonderful Uncle to my children, CeCe and William who always looked forward to visiting Uncle Art. I was very fortunate to have such special time toward the end in Grand Junction. His wonderful boys will truly carry on his legacy just as they have carried on their sweet Mother's legacy. I love you brother and will miss you tremendously. Thanks for being a fantastic human being. I know you are in the most beautiful nature surroundings of all. God Bless You on this most precious journey.
