Art was born the son of Arthur P. and Marie (Hoffmann) Krapfl on March 24, 1934. He was a veteran of the US Army. Art was united in marriage to Margaret Detweiler on October 7, 1961 at St. Patrick Catholic Church in Fond du Lac. He worked his whole life with his hands as a bricklayer with Masons Local 8.
