Art held a great passion for pheasant hunting, fishing and was an avid golfer. He took great pride in farming in the valley, since 1962. Art had a profound work ethic, and sat as President of both the Pea Growers and the Corn Growers Associations.
In 1980 Art got involved in the trucking business with his son Al. First it was trucks on the ore haul from the mine at Princeton and in 1983 they bought logging trucks and hauled in the Lillooet area where his son Mark soon joined them.
In 1994 Art semi-retired when Stuart moved to Creston to farm. He spent many happy hours helping with haying and combining. Also many holidays fishing at Peter Hope Lake and then at Sheridan.
Art was a dedicated family man who always looked forward to Friday coffee with his friends. Art will forever be loved and cherished by his family and all who knew him.
