Art joined the U.S. Marine Corps in 1942, and was initially stationed in Washington, D.C., where he met and married his wife of 70 years, Rosemary Nester. After his military service in Saipan and Nagasaki, Japan, Art and Rosemary settled and raised a family in Overland Park, KS. He began his work career as a sales representative of the Obear-Nester Glass Company and traveled widely throughout the United States.

Art will be greatly missed by family and friends.
