Heaven had better watch out! By now Art will be drinking a vodka martini, listening to Frank Sinatra, and to quote John Prine “ smoking a cigarette that’s nine miles long”. On Monday, June 17, 2019, Art passed away peacefully at Albright Manor, surrounded by his loving family. His wife of 67 years, Geordie, was by his side. Art and Geordie met when they were 14, dated, and married in 1951. Together they raised 5 girls, Cyndi (Don Duncan), PJ (Bill Romyn), Georgann (Cam Watson), KC (Jarvis Scott) and Johnna (Kevin McChesney). He was the proud Grandfather of twelve grandchildren and five great grandchildren. Art was fun. He loved a good party and he had many friends. Family events at the Lake house made lifelong memories for his children and grandchildren. His Grampa tractor rides for the kids were legendary. The family would like to thank all the staff at Albright Manor for their compassionate care and their enduring sense of empathy and humour. Donations to McNally House in Grimsby would be appreciated in lieu of flowers.

I always remember whether in the apartment on Albert St. or the lake house on Cope Lane or the house on Burgess Dr. it was a great party. Uncle Art was a cool, fun guy. He and my Dad John got into lots of trouble together. I am sure John has been waiting for you to party and heaven won't know what hit it. I'm sure Pat is still wagging her finger again at both of you now. On behalf of the Duncan, Kelly and Smith Families please accept our deepest sympathies Dedee and girls. Rest in Pease Uncle Art.

Uncle Art was a true legend. The Copes and the Coopers shared many happy times together, filling our hearts with wonderful memories to last a lifetime.
On behalf of Jay and Brad, and myself, sending hugs and kisses to Auntie Geordie and all of the Cope family. Xoxox Pamela (Cooper) McAuley

I remember all through high school that Chistmas Eve at the Cope home on Burgess Dr. was always a must attend event! Always so happy and fun, Artie was the coolest and most welcoming dad around. My heart goes out to the families loss. 🙏💙

Although Art was my first cousin, I always called him Uncle Art, Pj and I are the same age. Growing up Uncle Art and Geordie (notice no Aunt in front of that, she was too cool) were the most amazing couple, if you were around them it was always fun. My dad always said that when he passed away he was going to the first poker room on the left, I’ll bet Art just walked in the door. Love you, Art ❤️
