Dear Family & Friends of Bud Arrell,
I had the fortune of meeting Mr. Arrell on many occasions, and was he ever a delight. A man of honor, wit, and great pride and love for his family. The devotion shown to Mr. Arrell up to the time of"the beginning of the end", speaks volumes of his character and a job well done!
Free now to soar with the Angels eternally in spirit, with a wink and a nod........all's well.
May God Bless.
Sending love,
Christine & Wayne Parker

To the Arrell Family,
My grandma Cile talked so lovingly and so often about all of you and my cousin Pam told me of your family loss. I think about how Jesus said, "I'll make you all fishers of 'people'! I can remember one special childhood memory while visiting Minnesota and it was being very young and Uncle Bud took my dad, my brother Mark and I fishing. I had such a good time sliding down this hill to find the "big" ones. I am sure he is reeling in all the joys and peace of the Promised Land . May your intimate memories carry your with healing graces throughout the process of saying 'goodbye' until you meet him again in heaven.
Sincerely, Karen Kennedy Zurek

Barb, Shirley and all - I have had the pleasure of knowing the Arrell family for several years and I know Bud was an integral part of your family and will surely be missed. Won't forget the escapes to Las Vegas and the many fun times we have had over the years. I will never forget the fun times ... and know he will always be with all of you guys. Take care and my thoughts are with you. Mary Gearin

Dear Joni and family, So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. I'll always remember how you made sure to always call and chat with your Dad every day during our vacations with you. I was so touched by that. I'm sure that meant a lot to him. Our condolences. Dan McManimon and Tony Aguon
