I knew Art as a member of East Coast Research and Discovery Club. Art stepped down as out club treasurer when I first joined the club. He was a soft spoken, kind man and everyone in our metal detecting club regarded him very highly. May he Rest In Peace and condolences to his family.

As a HS Administrator in Newark, NJ I met Art and we became friends. It was always a pleasure to spend time with Art either at school or outside of school. Art was kind enough to invite me to a metal detector club meeting. We spoke several time after he moved to Lancaster. He will be missed. He was a true gentleman.

I knew Mr. Pearson as our neighbor who lived across the street from us while I was in high school. I was good friends with his daughter Kari, so I spent a good amount of time over at their home. Art was incredibly kind, humble and friendly, and was always inviting and happy to have us around. I was very sad to hear the news of his passing, and I wanted to extend my sincerest condolences to his family. I consider myself fortunate to have had Mr. Pearson as our neighbor, and I will always have fond memories of him and hanging out at his house with the rest of our neighborhood friends from Randolph.
