He married Julie Kvam on January 7, 1962, at the Silver Lake Lutheran Church, Northwood, IA. We were given 3 children to love and raise to be God loving adults and individuals.

Arlo loved the “soil of the earth” and made things grow and flourish. He loved raising hundreds of farm animals that lived in his barns and rejoiced the days we would load them into the truck and hauled them to town because this was Arlo’s “payday”.

Arlo was also a school bus driver for the Glenville School District. Sold seed corn and feed. Was a 4-H leader and loved to square dance and was a very active member of the Glenville First Lutheran Church serving in many capacities because of the love he had for his church and his Lord and Savior.

Arlo was a progressive man and not afraid to try new things and avenues. Loving, respecting, and following the direction he was given in his heart from his Lord and Savior.

Surrender seems to come with age and as our lives unfold before us.
