It is with sadness we announce the passing of our loving husband, father and brother, Art. He left us gently on Saturday, October 17, after a long and courageous battle with declining health.
We all loved his wonderful sense of humor and creative imagination. He left us many paintings, songs and stories (Puppydogs and Pussycat Stew, Barney the Boozin’ Beer Bug and Bon in the City), a few fine pieces of handmade furniture, garden benches and his famous pop bottle rocket!
He had a great love of nature and science, introducing his children to camping early in life. He enjoyed campfires at his cabin and in his final years, just looking at his lake and the ducks that visited it.
His working years running Mueller Renovations and prior to that, electroplating, were a source of satisfaction to him.
He leaves behind his wife Dixie, son Dan (Holly), daughter Caren (Terry), stepchildren Brooke (Tom) and Brandon. brothers Ernie (Robbie), George (Rosemary) and sisters Irene, Margaret, Heidi (Garry), grandchildren Dustin, Heather, Elizabeth, Rebecca and Jacqueline, great grandson Lucas and beloved dog Bonnie.
He will be sorely missed.
A celebration of Art’s life will be held on Saturday, November 14, 11am – 4pm (potluck lunch) at 5389 – 4th Ave in Tsawwassen. For directions please phone 604-313-7731.
