On the 24th of November 2013 the world lost a very special and clearly loved man. Art passed away with his wife of 55 years, Eirwen at his bedside. Proud father of Alastair (Jane) and grandson Austin. Also survived by sisters-in-law Muriel (Alan), Cindy (John) and many nieces and nephews.
Art was born in Wallasey, England in 1937 and immigrated to Canada in 1964 and lived in Kitimat until 2009 when he and his wife moved to Salmon Arm. Always the volunteer, he was very involved in his Church, he was a scout leader and coached soccer. The Legion meant a great deal to Art. He served several terms as President of Kitimat Branch and then became the Northwest Zone Commander and the sports officer for the Pacific Command. He was a life member of the Kitimat Branch. Art was a loving, caring man with a wonderful sense of humour.
There will be no service at Art’s request. Donations can be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
The family would like to thank the staff at Harmony Haven, Dr. Welder, the staff at Hillside Village, especially cottage 4, for the dedicated care he received.
