A great uncle! I remember him playing with us as kids as he seemed to be a kid and made me feel special. I will miss Uncle Art. Good Bless!
Lillie and kids….I was so sorry to hear of Art passing away. My memories of your family and the old neighborhood will always be cherished.
Kim and the entire Peck family, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
I worked with Art for many years at Scotch. He always said something to make me laugh. I really enjoyed working with Art and will always remember him. Our condolences and prayers go out to his family at this difficult time. Love and God Bless.
