SERVICE EXCELLENCE when you need it most.
We have lost a beloved husband, father and grandfather. Art is survived by his wife, Florence; his children Janette Berard, Gloria Beckham, Alan Berard, and Patricia Griffith; and 14 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren.As a child, Art was always working hard, and for years helped the family by delivering groceries and newspapers. At the start of WWII, he joined the Navy at age 17 and served until 1946. Art was a terrific dancer. At one dance, he met Florence; they married on October 16, 1948, and last celebrated their 68th anniversary. He was a rigger on structural steel buildings, and later worked as a millwright until he was badly injured on crane repair, and left on disability. Retiring in 1976, Art and Florence spent a lot of time touring Canada and the U.S. in a camper. They also spent several winters on Florida’s west coast.
Art’s family wishes to sincerely thank all the staff at Aspen Lake nursing home, and to the staff at Windsor Regional Hospital, for all the help they gave to Art. If you desire memorial tributes may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society.
