He enjoyed building blue bird houses and was honored by the Landowner Sportsman Association. Art loved to be outdoors with his cattle and animals. He especially loved his horse, Kit, who would do anything for Art, including rope or pack calves. Art also enjoyed trapping in the winter months.

In his younger years, he played a surprise Santa Claus and gave out candy bars to the area children.
