Art attended Beamsville High School and was an athlete in rowing, football, and baseball. He became an accountant for Purity Zinc Metals in Stoney Creek. He was a family man and spent his free time helping his boys participate and excel in sports, music and school.

He was very proud of his sons; Trevor who became a Catholic Priest and Zach who became a physiotherapist. Zach’s marriage to his husband Todd, brought Arthur great joy in his final year.
