Art always had a twinkle in his eye and a ready smile. He loved to tease in a gentle sort of way that could make a person laugh. He really liked to tease Ruby- and could always manage to get a rise out of her. My daughter's comment about Art "He was always fun for and old man". He entertained her more than once as she was growing up and spent time with the Great Aunts and Uncles.
