Art was also a caretaker for developmentally disabled individuals with his wife in their home for many years.
He had many passions as a young man that he carried into his adulthood. Some of which were maintaining and expanding his own beef farm. Art was an avid outdoorsman and loved spending time in the woods hunting, trapping, and cutting firewood. Some of his happiest moments came while riding his Fatboy Harley Davidson and spending time with his family. Art could often be found at his nephew’s house up the road, where they would spend countless hours together chatting about life or working on all types of projects. Art was a generous soul with a big heart, willing to help anyone needing a hand.
Calling hours will be held on Tuesday, May 30, 2023, from 5 to 7 p.m. at R.J. Fahy Funeral Home, 116 N. Broad St. Norwich. Funeral and burial will be held privately for the family.
