Uncle Arnold was my favorite uncle. I have fond memories of him and Aunt Dot. They were a lovely couple.

Arnold was my uncle and only 20 years older than me. He would tell stories about his brother Harold (my dad) and his father when the family got together. The one stories that always sticks with me is about him bringing me home from the hospital when I was born. My dad was at work so he was there for that assignment. Uncle Arn will always be in my heart. He was loved by all his nieces and nephews and there spouses. Aunt Dot, will be welcoming him to his heavenly home, so they can be together again for all eternity.
Miss you Uncle Arn

My heart goes out to all the Reuter family, as well as the Molnar’s. Arn was like a second Dad to me! I loved his quiet demeanor and dry wit!
He was always happy! He and my Dad were one day apart in age and they had so many positive similarities. We were all blessed with Dads that were “the best of the best!”
Please know that while I’m not at his graveside service in person, I will be in spirit. Thinking of you all and praying for peace in the days ahead.
RIP Arn!❤️❤️❤️
