In June, 1942, he joined the U.S. Army Air Corp serving in New Guinea and Mindora Island, Philippines in 1943. Art was discharged in 1945, and returned to the Cascade area. In 1946, he married Madonna Leva, and ranched in the Cascade area from 1946 to 1948. He joined Montana Power Co. in 1949, and remained with them until his retirement in 1984. Madonna and Art moved to the Augusta, MT area in 1952, raising four wonderful children; Jim, Don (deceased), Becky and Karla. Unfortunately, in 1975 Madonna passed away.
