He was a devoted member of Grace Protestant Reformed Church. A dairy farmer most of his life in Edgerton, Minnesota; in his later years he enjoyed helping his children with outdoor projects and was happy to labour alongside them. Arvin was a loyal friend and cared deeply for the people in his life. He loved God and exemplified his faith in his daily walk. We are thankful for the legacy of faith rooted into our heritage. He will be deeply missed, but we are grateful for our hope in eternity, and that we will be reunited someday in glory.
