Born in London, ON, he is survived by his beloved wife of over 61 years Donna Connor (nee Williams). Loving father of Greg (Tina) and Corrine (Ozzie).

Art also loved coaching women’s ball and one of his many accomplishments was coaching Century Flowers to a number of league titles.

  3. I’m so sorry to learn of Art’s death. I have many fond memories of working with him on committees, events and especially the hockey world. We always had fun poking fun at each other about anything and everything. It always ended up with a big laugh. Art was a classy guy. He is someone I will miss meeting up with and having some very interesting times together. I know you have many favourite Art moments and memories to help through this difficult time. I send my thoughts and prayers.
