My Condolences and Deepest Sympathy to Janet and the family and friends of Arnie. He will be greatly missed!
I had the pleasure of playing hockey with Arnie for nearly three decades and because I lived close by, was a frequent visitor at his home, along with my two sons. My older son is still a Viking fan to this day, because of him.
It’s troubling and sad to think that Arnie is gone. But may we all keep him alive in our thoughts and memories that we shared with him.

I met Arnie when I was 14 yrs. old. He & my brother Bob played baseball together. He was like a second brother to me even teaching me to drive (he was so patient). A wonderful close family friend spending many gatherings together. Arnie loved his Scandanavian heritage which we shared. My memories of Arnie's kindness & generosity of 64 yrs. are to numerous to mention. So glad he found love with Janet & her loving family. Arnie will be missed by many & especially me. Love, Sue (Engel) Conner

Arnie was a great guy and life long friend of my husband, Chuck. So many memories of sports and family get togethers. He was proud of his Swedish heritage and also a proud veteran, We will miss his laughter, generosity and gentle nature.
