Art was born on the farm near Yellow Grass on May 10, 1928 the 6th and youngest child of Louis and Emily Weber. He started his farming career when he bought land with his father in the RM of Griffin in 1945. He lived his life as a farmer taking great pride in all that he did. Art was very mechanically inclined. He held a US patent for one of his inventions. When others were in need he was always ready to support them with whatever was required.

He was blessed with a quick wit and a mischievous spirit. He enjoyed all that life had to offer. He was able to relate to people from all backgrounds. Art loved music and enjoyed entertaining others whether with a piano, guitar, mouth organ or song. He always had time for his wife, his children and their spouses, his grandchildren and his numerous nieces and nephews.
