Our hearts go out to Eric and his family during the loss of their loved one. We will be praying for the entire families.

Gage Dean says:

Art was a great guy and awesome co-worker to say the least. My first day at Water Management, I was brought to Mt. Juliet to learn how to inspect with him as my teacher. He took me around, introduced me to a lot of people and and taught me a lot of things about inspecting. I was supposed to shadow him for a week, so the next day we meet up and he asked me what I was doing back. I told him I was there to learn some more and Art said "I don't know why. I've taught you everything I know about this job." Not to soon after that I learned he had a pretty good sense of humor. Art put up with me for any and every question I had about the job and tried to set me in as many locations under as many contractors to learn about and see different techniques to help further my goal of becoming an engineer.

So, even having know "everything," it seemed like I always learn something new, every time I went out to visit him for lunch, cover a shift, or just followed him around to different sites. Its hard to think that there won't be another chance to learn from him, but I'm thankful he taught me what he could.

I'm sure he will be missed by all who have been blessed to have known my buddy Art.
