Arnie has been my neighbor for 40+ years. I have so many memories of him through the years. He certainly was entertaining!! His parties were epic including fireworks!! It was always comforting to walk out on our deck, smell his cigar smoke, and know he was enjoying the serenity of the lake. He will be missed.

To Family, you have my sincerest sympathy in Arnold's passing. He was my neighbor and I always appreciated his no nonsense personality. We also served on our homeowners association board a number of years back and again I appreciated Arnie's being no nonsense and task oriented. My son cleaned and tuned his heating system for years which he enjoyed doing. The sunlight is just a little dimmer in the neighborhood now. Stephen Fields

Much love, David & Gretchen
