Arne passed away peacefully in Kamloops Hospital Sunday night after a long battle with various health problems. His strength and courage was outdone by no one. Arne was an avid hunter and an amazing outdoors-man. He was very talented at playing guitar and singing. He was charming, charismatic and loved by all that were blessed enough to have him in their lives. He will continue to be a strong presence in the hearts and memories of his family. It is with aching hearts that his family will carry on with the knowledge that we will someday be together again.
