Art and I met became friends in the 80’s when he was with Western and I was at the phone company. After retirement he would always call me to tell me jokes or invite me to Western luncheons. RIP Art, you will be greatly missed by everyone that knew you.

Art was a very dear man and will be sadly missed by all. He was always kind and caring to everyone. Our children remember him at the family picnics playing horseshoes with them. He was so nice and tried to teach him his technique which they could never learn. He was the best!

Living in Las Vegas, NV. I had very little contact with our family until Facebook. Even now still very little. lol. I believe the last time I saw Uncle Art was for my dad’s (Antonio Leccese) funeral back in 1987. My condolences to all my cousins and their families for their loss.
