After retirement from Kodak, Art worked at Irondequoit Country Club as a landscaper tending to the greens and fairways. He would often bring home golf balls he would find to spread his love of the game with others. He also enjoyed bowling, watching baseball and hockey any chance he got. Art had a love for nature, especially Honeoye Lake and his beloved hummingbirds. When it came to his grandchildren and great grandchildren there was nothing that he wouldn't do. Whether he was swinging them, taking them for boat rides, playing ball for hours or spoiling them with treats, he cherished every moment he spent with each of them. Arthur held many different titles serving his community throughout the years such as President of the ARC of Wayne County and as an elder at his church. Art enjoyed life to the fullest, was a hard working and kind hearted man who cherished his family and friends.
