For several years, Art ran the scoreboard at the Waterman and Indian Creek High School. He especially loved to spend time playing with his granddaughter, Morgan, his dear little "Tad Pole." Art was a loving husband, father and grandfather who will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
He is survived by his wife, Laurie Eichelberger of Waterman; his daughters, Amy (Andy) Larson of Racine, Wis., and Amanda "Mandy" Harkalis of Las Vegas, Nev.; his granddaughter, Morgan Larson; and a close family friend, Nathan Hinman.
