    I worked with Art at VITA. Are projected a very quiet demeanor at work, but once I got to know him, I very much enjoyed our interactions. I was like Art and old mainframe guy, so we especially got to bond when our mainframe service was recompleted from Northrop Grumman to Perspecta. We spent a lot of time together in meetings discussing strategy and direction. And, it was especially then that Art’s sense of humor came through very much helping the project team during this complex effort and stressful transition. VITA has a monthly newsletter that goes out and occasionally they will ask staff for input on a topic. One such topic was a bucket list. I still recall that Art responded with his desire to remarry his current wife in a Las Vegas Wedding Chapel and getting married by Elvis! I know with COVID, a lot of plans were deferred, but I hope Art was able to check this one off. Sending my thought and prayers.

    Jo Ann, I’m so sorry for your loss of Art. I just now read of the passing of your beloved Art. We had great times skiing and introducing you both to each other many years ago, and as neighbors. I was just thinking of you this week. May the love of family and friends bring you comfort and peace during this difficult time. Blessings, Sandy
