I had the pleasure of working with Art at Eastwood Hospital in the 70's. He was a gentleman and a scholar. Rest in Peace Art!

Had the pleasure of working with Arthur many years ago. He was quite witty but you had to pay attention to catch it. Condolences to his family and friends. I know he will be greatly missed

Art will be greatly missed by the Dallas RARA chapter family.
Though I no longer live in Dallas;
I will always remember his witty sense of humor and the fun stories that he shared with us.
He made "Gamboa!" a legacy, both on and off the air...
