Art was working for FEMA earlier this year in LA when he was diagnosed with cancer. He was first treated in LA but returned home to PA in the summer. He was a licensed PI and a fellow board member of PALI (Pennsylvania Association of Licensed Investigators). He also served on the Compliance Committee with me. Art had been responding well to treatment and had planned to attend our annual seminar when he died in his sleep. He is sadly missed by the law enforcement and PI communities in PA.
