My husband, Bob, and I will always remember what a sincerely nice man Art was. We both had the privilege of working with him at United Telephone Co and always enjoyed being in his company. We're both glad to have known Art.  Our condolences go out to the whole family.

Bob and Debbie Stought
As little girls my sister and I would visit our grandparents, Glenn and Viola Natcher and when my uncle was in college, we missed him, so Mr. Mentzer gave us permission to call him Uncle Art...my thoughts and prayers are with you now.
