David W. Arnold
To my Son, our Dad, our Brother, our Nephew, our Cousin, our Friend. We have shed tears of happiness for you as well as tears of sadness; tears of laughter and tears of frustration; tears of hope and tears of despair. Although today we shed tears of pain on losing you here on earth, we also cry tears of joy in knowing you are now at peace in heaven.
We have learned many things from your life: patience, hope, the power of prayer, the strength of love. Throughout your life, your focus was your love for your children. They truly meant the world to you and your wish was for peace and love for your entire family.
You will be greatly missed by your four children: Mason (special friend Ashley) Arnold, Malory (fiancé, Grant) Arnold, Mackenzie Arnold and Marek (special friend Lizzy) Arnold; mother, Susan Arnold-La Marche (special friend Dan); siblings: Gary (special friend Suzi) Arnold, Connie (Joel) Wilz, Dawn (Dale) Dorschner; step brothers and sisters: Del Jr. ‘Bumper’ (Chris) La Marche, Dwight (Sherri) La Marche, Donna (Mark) Noack, Dede Kranzsuch and Danielle (Michael) Bangart; his girlfriend, Brenda and numerous nieces and nephews and dear friends.
Dave was preceded in death by his father, Wayne Arnold and step-father, Del La Marche.
We would like to thank all the nurses, doctors and others who have helped Dave. A special thank you to Tony for always supporting you and to Brenda who loved you and stood by you.
We love and miss you and find comfort in knowing one day we will again be together.
A Prayer Service for Dave will be held at 6 PM, Wed. August 8, 2018 on his 56th birthday at Brettschneider Trettin-Nickel Funeral Chapel with Rev. Adam Bradley officiating. Visitation will begin at 4 PM. In lieu of flowers a memorial fund is being established.
