    Art has been a great friend since the early 1970's when he owned the Flagler Radio and TV Repair store on Moody Blvd. He had a great deal of knowledge about the technical aspects of radio and tv, and was always a straight shooter. He was probably the last tv guy in Daytona with a working tube tester.

    When I went to the house with him the first time, I knew he and Twila had a great marriage, because he had a Porsche engine being rebuilt in their living room. I can't picture Art without a smile on his face. His one suspicious problem was that he would always bet on Notre Dame when they played against my team, the U of M . But that was forgivable, even though he'd walk away with my $10 bill most of the time.

    We'll miss you, Art.

    He was one of my best skeet shooting friends in the 90s. Without him and his friends I would not have had the love of the sports. May God rest his soul.
