obit-arthur-klassenArt was devoted to his family and always enjoyed the time spent with his children, grandchildren and extended family. He had a deep faith in God. Art did road construction, farmed and drove school bus. As a carpenter, he could tackle almost anything. In retirement, he volunteered with Rita at the Portage la Prairie (Man.) MCC Thrift Store as “fix-it man.” Art will be missed by all who knew him.
