Arnie was a proud Navy veteran, having served in country during the Vietnam era. He worked as a welder for Chevrolet Metal Fabricating in Flint and retired after 30 years. Arnie had his own blacksmithing shop set up at home and continued to work on welding projects for those in need. Together he and Jean loved spending time at their cottage in DeTour Village at the most eastern tip of the Upper Peninsula. Arnie’s hobbies included outdoor sports such as hunting and fishing. He canned homemade salsa from the vegetables that were grown in his garden.
