After graduation, he married Jane Ewing, whom he had known since childhood.

He was on the boards of several Hartford charitable organizations, most significantly the Harriet Beecher Stowe House and the YMCA. He also served on the West Hartford town finance committee.

Art and Jane loved sailing and skiing. They cared for their elderly parents and were deeply involved in the lives of their son and grandchildren. Art lived long enough to enjoy a close relationship with his great-grandson.
