Paul, otherwise known as "Art" , loved his family dearly. He would look forward to the Christmases where the family would gather in Colorado to celebrate the season. He loved to hunt, fish and anything else involving the great outdoors. He owned a good mule named Luke. He loved his dogs, Chester and Sophia and, much to the dismay of his children, would rarely go anywhere without them.
Art was an avid reader of biblical theology, the Bible and a collector of Louis L'amour. He was a man who of great faith, as such he would often use the phrase "all is well" during difficult times. He will be greatly missed by those he left behind but as he would say..."everything's gonna be alright".
In addition to his cowboy hat, he was a man who wore many "hats", he served as the founding Pastor of Abundant Life United Pentecostal Church in Ruidoso, NM and was ordained minister and served as a board member with the Texico District Pentecostal Church International. Art was also owner of Bonito River Services HVAC/Plumbing Company.
