Dave and I and our sons are glad to have known Art over these past years. He was a special guy. He will be missed!

So sorry to hear of Art's passing. Art and I were in the same grade and attended Keweenaw Bay Grade School and Baraga High school. We were in BHS's graduating class of 1956. My condolences to his family and particularly his sister, Mary Ellen, who was the baton twirler for the Baraga High School band. She and her friends Donna Moilanen and Shirley Kokko were the three that lead the BHS band whenever we were in a parade. Since I had an old car at the time and was in the band as a drummer, the three of them would ride with me whenever rides were necessary.
