Arla worked in the Pattonville, Missouri area for many years, holding several different jobs. He decided the city life wasn't for him, so he returned to country living, working in the timber. He loved the outdoors, so after retiring he spent his time hunting and fishing. He was also quite talented in wood working, creating many items for his family and friends. He was a loving father, father-in-law, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend and will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.

(I knew this person for about 4 years, and I have never met a kinder and gentle soul than Arley. He never had a bad word to say about anybody.)
