It was my pleasure to work with Arnie and his sons for many years in Wausau. He was a wonderful and caring man, who went out of his way to make sure everything at the cemetery was right for the family he was serving. Proud to have known and his bright smiling face. Rest in God's arms.

Arnie was a truly faithful person. He was ready to help at any time with inspiration and a smile. We became very close when we lost our son in 2005. He will always be here and St Joes. Thank you, Arnie, for your friendship and support. We will see you soon.

Mike & Charlie... your dad left behind some mighty big shoes to fill! Anyone that knew Arnie, knew what a great guy he was! I enjoyed the times watching with grandkids and how special they each became to him. All of the grandkids will miss him but remember him fondly in their hearts. SO HAPPY that Katie made it here to make Arnie's day! They had a pretty special bond those two. Hugs to you and all of the family. He is now happy in heaven with Mom (Joanne). He has waited a long time to be with her!

Safe Home, Arnie. I was honored to know you, and touched by your dedication- not only to Xavier Hawks Sports but to your work at the cemetery. Your personal attention as we laid Mom to rest- and you pointed out to us our infant brother’s spot; then years later your careful supervision of your boys as Dad was laid to rest deeply touched my heart. Heaven has gained a special man. Thoughts and prayers to your family Arnie.
Mike & Kathy Bates left a message on December 12, 2019:
Our thoughts and prayers go out to Arnie and his family. Having known him and his boys since the late 60's, our family and the Xavier Community were blessed to have had Arnie as a part of our lives, and to work with him regarding Xavier Athletics, for so many years. Rest well, our friend! God has gained a special man.
