Arthur ‘Art’ Suderman was born in Regina, Saskatchewan on November 29, 1939. He moved with his family to Calgary in 1948. Art graduated from St. Mary’s Boys School in 1957 with a 94% grade point average and immediately joined his dad (Abe) at the Calgary Herald to begin his five-year printing apprenticeship.
Art had a lifelong love affair with the car. He took journalism at night at the University of Calgary to refine his skills as a freelance automotive writer. When newspaper technology changed in 1982, Art went to the Newsroom as the automotive journalist. He was involved in motorsports and writing for magazines and was named Canada’s Automotive Journalist of the Year in 1987. Art retired in 1996.
Art is survived by his wife of 61 years Donna; his daughter Cathy Godfrey (Sean); his grandson Brandon; and his granddaughter Emily. He was predeceased by his parents Abe and Kay Suderman; his brother Ken Suderman (Jan); and his son Allan Suderman.
