So is it confirmed?
Did Art pass away?

Art was a snow bird, he and his wife always came to Hawaii during the winter. I met Art back in 1989, a very friendly, warm and funny man
who was very generous with info and knowledge. He taught me A LOT about handling and flying big kites, and he made some very big kites.
He would always call me when he got into town because he need a ride to whatever park that was blowing the best, and I always picked him up to go and fly his newest creation. We lost a great man and kite maker.

Rest in Peace my friend, it was an honor and privilege to fly and learn from you.
