I bet one of the first things Art said to Jenny was "I'll run you a race."
Art will be missed by many in the ward. He was always so much fun on the arronic priesthood outings. He is a gentel man of few words. Sorry for your loss.
Dear Penny and family. Sorry to hear about Art. He will be greatly missed. Some fond memories are of the "Piaute Trail" and other associations.

I was saddened to learn of the passing of Art. We were classmates in school and had many experiences together. He made the basketball team and I didn't. Our condolences to the family. He will be missed.
So sorry to read of Arthur's passing, We grew up together in Samaria, I was not able to make it to the viewing or funeral, but wanted to express my sincere regrets. I have many wonderful memories of our youth growing up together.
I am so sorry I was unable to attend Arts services, I was out of town and did not come back in time. I feel so bad for you. Losing your husband is so difficult and I know just how you feel. My heart just goes out to you. You and your family are in my prayers.
