Art and I worked at the Red Cross together. Our paths took us in different directions, but friendship continued through the years. I remember coming back from Collinsville getting stuck on the Popular St. bridge. With cars flying by and the bridge shaking Art put his arm around me to calm me down. I was so scare. That was Art. Always caring. Always thinking of others. So many memories.

I can see the twinkle in his eyes when he spoke of Meg, his kids, and beloved grandchildren. What wonderful stories he told of a very adored family.

A friend said of Art that he is closest she has ever known to a saint. How true. Meg and family you are in my prayers

I was so sorry to see the obits in the Post this morning. My wife and I both remember Art from our days at "4050 Lindell" What a great guy. He was also so nice, quiet, sincere, and you always knew he was very religious but he never pushed his beliefs on anyone he led by example.

I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember what a proud papa he was. He was always very welcoming, a very kind man. We have been thinking of you all and praying for you. I hope you find some comfort and peace knowing he touched so many lives in such a positive way.

What a wonderful guy. So sorry to hear of his passing. Grew up with him and always admired his gentle demeanor. He was a remarkable person. My best to all, I celebrate knowing him.

Besides those things noted in the obituary as a fitting tribute to Art, we also want to recall that Art was a guitarist, singer and member of the Washington University Newman Center for many years with Fr. Jerome Wilkerson, our beloved “Jerry” or “JFW.” Since Fr. Jerry was in the final stages of Alzheimer's, we had no idea that Art would beat him to the beatific vision! And now Art is surely greeting Jerry.

Art was a faithful member of our Newman discussion group as well, never failing to add thoughtful questions and comments to the conversation. And no one can forget Art's wonderful laugh—and there were plenty of times in all our lives as young parents that life's absurdities prompted boisterous laughter!

It is hard to think of one member of a devoted couple without the other. Art and Meg's presence in our lives was always together, in unity. We will be reminded poignantly of Art every time we see Meg and their children and families—truly a great legacy.

Art was an amazing and wonderful man with the most gracious spirit. His smile and laughter captured us all. He was easy to approach and talk to. He would not say anything negative but find a way for there to be something positive in every situation. He could capture everyone around him when he spoke. I will miss seeing him in the office and sharing the staff lunches with him.
