He was predeceased by his parents Madeleine and Nathan Bragg, sister Sheila Munden, Mother and Father-in-law Amanda and Adolphus Pinsent, Sisters-in-law Lillian Pinsent and Joan Bragg and Brother in law Garry Fowlow,. Art had many great loves in life - first and foremost he was a true family man. He loved spending time with his family and grandchildren who gave him a lot of joy in his life. He was never short of a warm hug and he loved a good get together. Many happy days were spent at his cabin in MacDougall's with family and friends. Art loved a good heart-to-heart chat, even if it went into the wee hours of the night. He also loved music - a talented drummer in the Newfoundland-famous Ducats for many years, Art kept the beat for everyone on many occasions, whether he was playing the drums, the "ugly" stick or the spoons. He passed that love of music on to his children and grandchildren. He also taught many a budding musician to play the spoons. Art spent many years as a successful businessman and is probably best known for his years at the beloved Donut Shop in Port aux Basques, where he and Judy spent many happy years. Art liked to be a part of his community - he spent many years in the Lions Club, on the town council and in the Historical Society. Art was a great leader and a kind, generous spirit. He always made time for his friends. He made everyone he knew feel loved and important. He was often heard to say "my heart is full." And so are all of ours, because he holds a special place in every one of us. Cremation Services have taken place. A Celebration of Art's Life was conducted in June. An additional Celebration of Life, to be conducted in Port aux Basques, NL, will be in August.
