Arnold A. Angebrandt, age 92 formerly of Suffield, passed away Monday, March 29, 2021, while residing at Kent Ridge Senior Living.

He was born May 14, 1928, in Lexington, Ohio, to parents John M. and Christine K. (Weber) Angebrandt. Arnold grew up in Rootstown, Ohio where he eventually met his wife Martha Ulm. They were married on October 26, 1952, and began raising their family in Mogadore, Ohio. Sadly, Martha passed away February 7, 2021, and they are now reunited.

Arnold retired as a foreman for Firestone Tire & Rubber on June 30, 1981, after 30 years of service. He was a hard worker, who also worked as a carpenter. He enjoyed tinkering around the house and helping others, leading Arnold to become the family handyman. Arnold served his country as a member of the Ohio National Guard for six years and loved taking nature walks with his dogs.

Arnold is survived by his daughters: Becky (Eric) Hilston and Katherine Reedy, his granddaughter Jennifer Hilston, as well as generations of loving nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents and wife, Arnold was preceded in death by his siblings: John E. Angebrandt, Elizabeth Angebrandt, Eleonore McLaughlin, Gerhardt E. Angebrandt, and Christine G. Abshire.

I am so sorry for your loss. Uncle Arnold was truly a character in the best sense of the word. I will remember him for the permanent twinkle in his eye as he always took the opportunity to share funny stories about times past (and often about him and my dad) including in his Christmas letters in the cards I received. He was always upbeat, funny and brought lots of energy and fun wherever he went. His death so close to that of Aunt Martha is not a surprise as I am sure he wanted to be together. Its also somewhat fitting that it was on dad's birthday so he can now be together with his wife, and his long time friend.

I am including one of my favorite photos of him and my dad in their tank group from the National Guard. RIP Uncle Arnold and thanks for the stories and the wonderful memories.
