The loss of a legend…

The bottle opener (and corkscrew) collecting world got word yesterday that Art Santen has passed away.

A superhero in the bottle opener collecting world!

And, as mentioned the other day, Tommy and I were fortunate to visit Art at his home in St. Louis a few years ago, and I even got to don his corkscrew cape!

It was a terrific visit, and of course, seeing him at the JFO meetings over the years was fantastic.

Our condolences go out to the Santen family.

By the way, city of Saint Louis, if anyone deserves a star on the sidewalk, it would be Art!
