    I have so many memories of Uncle Artie. Riding in the back seat of his car while he puffed away on his cigar, seeing him in Aunt Claire’s antique shop, and always bumping into Aunt Claire and Uncle Artie at Gregg’s when we visited R.I….Uncle Artie always looked out for everyone. He will always be in my memories and in my heart.

    Very sorry to hear of Arty’s passing. I met Arty at Antique Haven store which he and Claire owned. When the property came up for sale I talked to Arty and I was able to buy the property with a handshake agreement. Not many people can say that these days. It was a pleasure working with Arty to get such a deal done. My sincere condolences to Claire and his family.
