Art was born on the farm in Blaine Lake and attended Windsor Lake Rural School. His teen years were invested assisting his parents on the farm. In his early 20's he began working for the R.M. of Blaine Lake. In 1963 he married Julie Boutin and together they raised one son and began operating the family farm. Art enjoyed fishing, hunting, travelling and especially dancing. He enjoyed teasing, loved children and was an avid supporter of 4-H. In fact Art died with his Crown Hill 4-H Beef Club t-shirt on. He was very proud of his grandchildren and their accomplishments and enjoyed attending their hockey games and 4-H events. To all that knew him Art loved the light hearted side of life and his smile expressed the softness of his big heart.
