Condolence: We are so saddened to hear about Artie's passing. We will always cherish the fun times we had on Kline Blvd., the Baumles home, Bachman's and poker games we had at our home to name a few. He was a good man. God Bless him. May he rest in peace.

Condolence: "RC" was a legend to me in my teens. We were pals and at times he was my protector. He could be larger than life and was one of those people who knew a little about many things. His projection of worldliness at the tender age of fifteen drew me to him. I was two years younger and clearly had a lot to learn. RC was all too happy to school me.

I can't tell you how many times I rode shotgun in the once red/than primer grey '68 Camarro he cherished. I helped him drop a new, and more powerful engine in it with nothing more than ropes, a hydraulic jack, and a few beer filled friends. Those were the days - matted black angel hair on the dash and Black Sabbath's "Master of Reality" blaring from the eight-track through blown speakers.

God, I'll miss him. The memories his company provided were truly some of the best from my troubled youth.

Condolence: Very few people know this, but Art Horning has been waging a brave fight against cancer for over a year now. He passed away peacefully last night, with the people who loved him most dearly at his side.

That battle was just what anyone who knew Art would expect, as he was one of the strongest and most courageous people I've ever known. There were no complaints from him about his illness, he just rolled with it, like everything else in his life.

As for me, just how does one even begin to fill the huge gap left in your soul that comes from losing someone you've known so well, and for so very long? We were complete Brothers, in every sense of the word. We would have given each other the shirt off our backs, and he did exactly that for me, on more occasions than I could possibly count.

Art and I first met in Kindergarten, and were even in the Cub Scouts together. His Mom was our Den Mother.

He made my introductions to the girl who would eventually become my Bride, then was Best Man at my wedding. I remember him offering me the keys to his Camaro outside the church just before the ceremony saying, "She's all filled up, this is your last chance man!"

Was he serious? I couldn't even tell you, because all I could do was laugh. That's just the way he was. There was never a dull moment when it came to this man, and his off-the-wall sense of humor.

He was also Godfather to my oldest son, and all my children affectionately called him "Uncle Art".

It's such a tremendous loss, to everyone who was fortunate enough to know him. One thing's for certain, he'll be in my heart and thoughts until my dying day.

Rest easy now, Bro. I know you're riding your beloved Panhead down the highway of the afterlife, in God's good graces.
