I had the great privilege of working with Art when he generously agreed to serve as co-chair (a second time) with me for Ontario Tech's President's Indigenous Reconciliation Task Force and our Indigenous Education Advisory Circle. I can still hear his voice from our phone calls -I miss those phone calls. He left an indelible mark and a big void. He is missed.

Art left behind many wonderful memories. I spent a lot of time with Art in our younger years, enjoying life to it's fullest. Art was so pleasant and easy to be around, he could belly laugh as good as the next. I remember him hosting a steak BBQ at John's cottage to raise money for the Church, and believe me, Art could cook!! So many memories, so many laughs..... you will be missed.

I'm saddened to hear that Art has passed. I have many fond memories of being a little girl and spending my favorite child hood memories with Art and my Dad Paul Brown, fishing and spending time at the cottage, with Liz and John as a family, so many Christmases and memories I hold deap. It is nice to know that my dad has his best friend up with the angels.
