At Princeton he majored in economics and wrote his thesis on inheritance taxes, played on the golf team, and was active on Cannon Club’s intramural teams. He had a lifelong enjoyment of sports: golf, tennis, fly-fishing, snow skiing, and bowling (“in other words, I have not changed”). Following college, Art spent two years in the Army.
With a degree from University of Montana Law School, he worked for a large office and part time with the Cascade County attorney before establishing his own firm, Matteucci & Falcon. With customary brevity Art outlined his career for one of our class histories: “I sue people.”
He served as president of Montana’s senior golf association and was a member of Great Falls’ park board and symphony board. With his wife, Sandi, he enjoyed travel and escaped winter at homes in Texas or Arizona. Often he was on a creek or river near his place at Monarch with his brother-in-law Hal, passionately fishing.
Art is survived by his wife, Sandi; son Scott ’99; sister Janet Harper; and six grandchildren. His son Jeffrey preceded him in death.
