I'd like Art's family to know that I always enjoyed working with him at United Press International in St. Louis. He was already a veteran when I joined, so he gave me a lot of guidance and help in the early years of my career, even though I was just a lowly reporter. He had a very sarcastic sense of humor and got off some good zingers, which I also enjoyed. I'm so glad he was honored by being inducted into the Missouri Photojournalism Hall of Fame, a well-deserved honor. I'm sorry I won't be able to attend Art's visitation, but I'll be thinking about him and your family.

I will miss the guy that taught me a lot about life and how to deal with a lot of situations with and without a camera......

So sorry to hear about Art's passing. He called me just a fews weeks ago and never mention his illness. We worked together at UPI for a about 10 years before I moved to Chicago. We kept in contact even after UPI laid off everyone around 1993. May he rest in peace in the lap of the Lord.
