The Free Press community mourns the recent loss of our good friend, Art Strauss.

Art Strauss was a magnificent human being who made this community--- and the world---a better place.

He was warm, funny, smart, effective and completely dedicated to the causes of social justice, environmental preservation and much more.

Art, with his equally dedicated wife, Cindy – were recipients of the Free Press “Libby” Award for Community Activism several years ago.

It was always a joy to work with Art, who knew how to get things done in a graceful, enjoyable way.

He will always be with us, helping to make the world a better place.

With Love & Appreciation....Harvey Wasserman and Bob Fitrakis
