So sad to hear about the passing of Arnie, working with him in the Public Works Department was wonderful. I remember when he was expecting his first grandchild, we held a grandpa baby shower for him in the office. He was a great guy and a great co-worker.

Thank you for sharing that memory! We love to hear stories of Dad

I was lucky to have gotten to know Arnie. We
Were coworkers, but we became friends. Life was never boring if you were with Arn. I loved hearing the stories. He loved to tell stories, from growing up in small town Eagle, to stories about his kids and grandkids. Whenever I ran into him, his first question was how was I doing, and were my wife and kids well. For all of his family and step family, I am sorry for your loss. I’ll miss seeing him around. Peace. Mike Gerdes.

Arnie said that the best, and worst, part of working for the City was the people. He was definitely one of the ones that made it better.

Hi Kile, that sounds like Dad! He was a great man, thank you for sharing. Andy, Jessica and Gretchen
