As a young man, Art raised his family in Seaford New York where he enjoyed boating, fishing, and the beach. He spent a great deal of time by the water and with his family. Arthur worked as a commercial artist and was very talented. His love of art and history is shared by many of his grandchildren and great grandchildren who he adored. In his final years, Art found love a second time with Linda Stasco, his fiancé. Arthur’s love of family and life was infectious and to know Art was to love him.
