  4. Very sorry to hear this, looked forward to the FB posts of the baking and the food prep. BBQ’s and the baking would make me hungry. Art and Bev’s travels to the local eateries were always good to see and reminders of the old days. Known Art since Elizabeth Fisher, kept in touch over the last few years which I enjoyed however I had not had the chance to get up to Victoria for a visit. A good man and he will be missed ….

    Our deepest condolences and thoughts go out to you all. I really enjoyed my time with Art. I’m sure he’s at peace and enjoying some excellent blues/rock music right now!
    Love from the Sherwood family. Chris, Tracy, Keegan and Kaylie.

  15. I am in tears. Art was my best friend in High School. He was the first student to talk to me and welcome me as my family had just moved to Langford. We were close friends after that for a few years. I did visit him while he was in hospital, not long ago and we talked about old times. It was like old times again. Art – rest in peace as I will always treasure the time we spent, hanging out, drinking root beer, wondering what we would do with our lives.

    • Thank you.
      He sure talked fondly about his old Langford day adventures and friends. Thanks for visiting him in the hospital.
      Bev and family.

  16. My condolences to Art’s family. Art and I went to high-school together and like a few other classmates reunited on Facebook. Yes Art’s was one with a gentle manner about him and a great sense oh humor. Family, motorcycles and BBQ seemed to be the most important parts of Art’s life. He did seem to love a good cut of beef.
    I realized Art’s had some health issues and I think his attitude in dealing with them is beat said in this biker qoute “When Life Throws You a Curve…Lean Into It, Pick Your Line and Keep Your Weight on the Outside Peg.”
    Going to miss you and your posts buddy.

    • Thanks, Glen.
      Missing him and his sense of humour. He sure liked catching up with his school friends.
      On his last peaceful ride.
      Bev and family.

  17. Art was actually my patient early on in his sickness. I remember him , grey and very unwell the day he went to Saint Pauls. I was sure I would never see him again. I did see him again, pink and glad to be alive . I have run into him several times over the years , always glad to see him. Art I will always remember.

    • Thanks, Tim for visiting him after the heart transplant. He sure was a fighter when it came to health problems.
      Bev and family.

  18. I’ll will miss our talks and visits my dear friend. Save a place at your table for me when my time comes…I’ll get the first round! Thank you for sharing your time with me.
    Much love to you Bev and condolences to your family.

  19. I only just found you my friend and now you are gone.
