Art was raised on the family farm in the Wicklow district. Art attended Wicklow School for grades one to seven and then attended Grandview High School for one year.
Art worked on the family farm until his brother Wayne married Beverley and took over the farm in 1951. Lindsay, Margret, Art and Carol moved to town where Art resided until he moved to the Grandview Manor in 2008.
Art worked at the Grandview Motor Inn as a custodian for 26 years. He was awarded the Manitoba Hotel Association Loyalty Award for his loyal service to the hospitality industry.
