condolences and stories of Arthur O. Silver below and
we will share them with the family.
I enjoyed knowing Arthur for nearly all my life. I admire his many passions, his dedication to his business, and his quest for learning. I have very fond memories of times with him in Chicago, Madison, and a trip or two to Door County. I particularly rememder doing yoga with Arthur in the 1970s, and a trip to Door County in 2016, during which we spent time at an art studio working on art pieces together. He lived a full life filled with many adventures, and I shall remember him fondly.

We called him Uncle Art, those of the previous generation called him Babe. The youngest of 5 whose parents, Carl and Bella, were immigrants from Poland and Russia and spoke Yiddish as their first language.

When we were growing up his visits to our home for holidays, birthdays, and other celebrations were always a treat. His pleasant, friendly, quiet demeanor was impactful He was bigger than life and was always doing interesting things.

I recall his assistance when my family moved to Israel. His correspondence when my mother took ill was very kind, supportive, and balanced. Later I would see him when I visited Chicago and heard about his life and adventures.

He will be missed. Really I've missed him for a while already.

Uncle Art, my mother's brother,

Uncle Art will be sadly missed. He helped and inspired all who he came in contact with. He helped them with a full heart and lived life to the fullest. In our family, he was the last of his generation.
We all loved him and we always will love his memory.
