Pat and family so very sorry to learn of Arny's passing. Hoping I can speak for the Class of 1952 at both MHS and MCHS when I say Arny will be missed at our 65th year reunion this coming August. He always had a smile and cheery hello for me when I saw him which wasn't often but he always remembered who I was. My thoughts and prayers are with you and pray God lifts the saddness from your hearts.
