Today was a celebration of Art’s life and selfless compassionate service to others. It was a service designed and requested by Art before his passing. Many members of the Mountaineering Unit and ‘Jeepers’ of the Fresno County Sheriff’s Office attended along with family and friends. Those paying tribute included Art’s pastor, Trent, Art’s best friend of 40 years, Daughter Pam, Son Marc, Grandson Mitch, Lieutenant Curtice and Sheriff Mims.
Retired Sheriff’s Deputy Curtice was accompanied by guitar and sang a request from Art. There was also a video slide retrospective of Arts life. There was a display of Art’s awards and memorabilia including Art’s prized jeep. The final hymn was “Amazing Grace”
Following the service, there was a buffet meal prepared by the Northwest Church parishioners. It was good to greet old team members and Art’s family members.
That Art, “What a guy”.
