I am so sorry that we missed the wake for Art today. We were at the home at 4 and though we missed the service. Art and I go back to our childhood in Ellenville and were classmates until I missed a year and he was ahead of me. We reunited when we both worked at IBM in Kingston in the 50s, 60s and 70s. Pat we Winnie and I are very sorry for your loss, please except our thoughts for your sorrow. Jim & Winnie McKenzie

Aunt Pat, Diane and Kathy, I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I have many fond memories with Uncle Art, from the squirrel hunting for the annual " Super Bowl Party " , fishing Trips including the annual Montauk Run to deer hunting in the fall and Ice fishing in the winter. Oh lets not forget the spring wood cutting trek to Sundown. Diane did her share of cutting with the Boys !!! what an adventure !!!! I will always cherish those memories and I am grateful to have been able to spend that time with Uncle Art.. You will always be in my Heart.
Love,
Ricky.

I am very sorry for your loss. I was privileged to work with Art in 2001 -2003 and know how dedicated to his wife and daughters ,he was a great man . While working with Art
one could tell he had a military background, cause he kept such detailed records and his writing was so clear and neat. I was honored to know and work with him.
Your family is in my thoughts and prayers. The world has lost another great person!
Jim
