Art Kainz

Jul 20 1944 - Apr 01 2017

It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Art after a brief illness. Art was diagnosed with lung cancer on February 14, 2017 in Naples, Florida where he had enjoyed life as a snowbird over the past six years. Predeceased by his parents Josef and Rose Kainz and brother Frank Kainz. Most cherished husband of Lynn Kainz (Lefebvre). Very proud and loving father of Kristin Kainz (Piero Ingratta) and Michael Kainz (Tanya). Best Opa ever to the loves of his life, Grandchildren Nolan, Alex, Emerson, Sydney and Owen. Favourite son-in-law to Ann and Joseph Paolatto (deceased). Favourite brother-in-law to Peggy Kainz and Ann Aston (Michael). Brother-in-law to Lou Paolatto (Delores, deceased) and Marilyn Paolatto (Bill, deceased). Favourite uncle and great uncle to the Kainz and Paolatto nieces and nephews. Art began his personnel career at Chrysler Canada but spent the majority of his career as the Human Resource Manager of the Windsor Star. He retired from Revenue Canada. Art was blessed with many Canadian and US friends. Next to Lynn, golf was the second love of his life. Art was a long standing member of Beach Grove Golf and Country Club (since 1985) and Treasurer of the Hookers (9 Hole Men's League). He will be greatly missed by his fearsome foursome- Walt, Alex and Tony.
