    candle 1The streets and alleys of New Town are quiet now without Art and Mr. Blue .

    The children on the bus stops, the workmen at the building sites, the joggers, walkers will miss Art’s daily greeting. For us, there will be no more unofficial official monitor of our tomato plants in the summertime . We have lost the mayor of New Town. Rest In Peace .

    candle 6Who-knows-how-many-years-ago, at a family reunion, this quiet, friendly guy took the time to play football pass with me for a while. I had a great time, and asked my parents who he was. They told me that his name was Art. Thank you, Art, for passing the football with me. I will be praying for you and your family.

    candle 3When I think of Art, it is with a smile. Art and Liles house was a gathering place for fun. He was the unofficial Mayor of New Town. He will never be forgotten.

    When Art and I started hanging together, we realized we had a lot of things and friends in common, going back to the late 50’s and 60’s. Our hobby became visiting old buddies who we had not seen in a while and going to cars and coffee breakfast and lunches. We would occasionally take our gals (Lil and Sandy) out and on one occasion visited CROWNS CANDY in the city. We referred our activities as “LET GO RAISE SOME HELL”. Art you are a legend in the hot rodding world. I am going to miss you, buddy.

    candle 8I cannot begin how much Art was a inspiration in my life. Being one of his sons friends from grade school up, I would see what Artie’s dad was up to. From the Green Dodge to the Blue Plymouth that Lil and him built and enjoyed was such a impressionable experience. Art took time to teach his kids and others his crafts and you couldn’t help but gravitate towards him due to his hilarious demeanor. I could give you millions of stories but I think of a few and laugh still to this day some thirty years later. I can imagine when you go to heaven that Art will be there asking for a secret password to let you into heavens gate with a good cheerful laugh. I’m sorry for my lost but most importantly everyone of Arts family… My deepest truest condolences – Today we visit the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco and will leave a little something and say a prayer for him and his family.

    We are so sorry for your loss. We will miss seeing him around the neighborhood on his golf cart, always in a happy mood, smiling and waving. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

    We had not seen Art since the 1990’s when he was at a friends house helping her. But I remember his big smile and laugh.

    Lil, Artie and Mark our thoughts are with all of you as you go through the difficult weeks and months ahead. You have a lot of memories to look back on and can think of the wonderful times you had together. May God be with you and give you the strength you need to get through the rough times. Rest in peace Art.
