Art was a man of many hats; not only was he a son, father, brother, husband, uncle, friend, grandfather and great-grandfather, he was an incredible problem solver, mechanic, mixer man, beater engineer, builder equipment operator, an all-around jack of all trades. His passion in life was fishing and mechanics, and his boat and skidoo were his pride and joy. With all of these combinations of skills and talents, Art was a modest man who had the biggest heart. He was the caretaker of his family day or night. Art loved and supported his family and took great joy in spending time with them at his home, his paradise.
A funeral service will be held on Thursday May 12, 2022 at 2 p.m. in the funeral home chapel. The family will receive friends on Thursday from 12 noon to 2 p.m. at LESSARD-STEPHENS FUNERAL HOME. Remembrance donations to SickKids Foundation would be greatly appreciated.
