Born in North Battleford, SK, Art moved to Vancouver as a child where he grew up,
worked and met the love of his life Carmen, with whom
he cherished 56 years of marriage. He enjoyed 37 years
of working with all the amazing people at Evergreen

and chocolate, but mostly he loved his
family. His wisdom, guidance, humor and love
will be deeply missed.
