  1. I met Art about 45 years ago when I started dating Tim. He always treated me like a daughter. He was very helpful and supportive when we needed it. As his health really started to decline over the last few months he always asked about his Grandchildren and Great Grandsons. He wanted to make sure they were doing well. We will miss you Grandpa. Thanks for always being there!

  2. Tim, we are so very sorry about your loss,our thoughts and prayers are with you and your entire family. Brian and Grace Rosse

  3. Tim, and to the entire Stevens family. I am so very sorry to hear of Arts passing. Thinking of Art brings back many memories from Adirondack/Alpine Meadows to building my house. We all benefited from having the chance to know Art. He will be missed , Heaven is the lucky one now.
