I am so sad to hear this news. I just got to know him this past year. He was a good friend of my brother Jim Keech. They are in lawnmower racing heaven now. He such a colorful and delightful character. I'll miss not see and chatting with him at the Sparta lawn mower races this year. My heartfelt condolences go out to his entire family. He will be greatly missed. Mow on Dr Art!
Melody called me this morning to inform me about Art. Art was a big part of our lives and we both are saddened by his passing. Art would brighten any room when he walked in, and his wisdom and perspective always made things seem better. His character was bold and sprinkled with mischief, his spirit was genuine. Art left this world a better place. Our love and sympathy to Kristine and family- Fondly, Connie (Calligan) Hines and Melody (Calligan) Elder.
I was so shocked and saddened to see Art had died. He was a close co-worker with my deceased husband Dan Kurmas back in 1970s Dearborn Public Schools Administration. They had so many laughs together and they were the "young guys" in an older administration. My heartfelt condolences to the family.
Dear Sue and Family! You are in our thoughts and prayers. We are saddened at the loss of Art. We so enjoyed both of you as our neighbors. May God bless you at this difficult time. We will keep you in our prayers. Ben and Nancy Evola
