Art was my grandpa, and I have many fond memories of big family dinners, nights filled with dancing to big band music playing from the record player, and endless summers swimming in the backyard pool. After a night swim, grandpa would coax my sister and I out of the pool with a cup of Fry’s hot cocoa (and only forgot the sugar once!). When I was 8, after a family reunion at Christina Lake, we took a road trip in the old Thunderbird down to the states where the car broke down and we had to get towed overnight to a small town where all the motels had no vacancy so we ended up sleeping in the car! Remembrance days will never be the same without him here. He will be forever missed.
