In his quiet, unassuming manner, Art exemplified the role of devoted husband and loving father. We learned many lessons from June and Art 35 - 40 years ago that have helped shape our lives in a positive fashion. We extend our sympathy to his family and friends who loved him dearly.

Chuck and Gloria Bowman
