Grosse Pointe Shores City Manager Mark Wollenweber said by email that when the lakefront house was constructed, "It was one of the most expensive here in Grosse Pointe Shores". Last year, his sons Gary and David Van Elslander rode in his stead.

And although his name and the Thanksgiving Day Parade have become inseparable, his contributions to Metro Detroit extend well beyond that piece of philanthropy.

"(He was) just a great man", the Parade Company's Tony Michaels told WWJ's Roberta Jasina. St. John Hospital and Medical Center, whose campus is in Detroit and Grosse Pointe Woods, was a major recipient. After graduating from Denby High School in 1948 and serving in the U.S. Army, Mr. Van Elslander married, started a family and took a job at Gruenwald Furniture.

Van Elslander was the flawless example of how personal success can translate to the public good.

His business acumen was extraordinary, he added, noting how he had built a multi-faceted Art Van with mainline stores that went after the broad middle market, clearance centers within these stores that were merchandised for and promoted great value and the high-end Scott Shuptrine Interiors in several locations, too.

"A dynamic and successful businessman, Art spent much of his life giving back - abundantly - to the community that supported his businesses over the years". "His gifts to our health system - and to many other charitable programs in MI and beyond - have had immeasurable impact on the quality of life for individuals and families within the community".
