|Beloved brother, father and friend. He will be missed!|
"Happy birthday, Arnie. Your daughter has quite a soundtrack on your page. I think you'd dig it! Remembering you today..."
"Happy birthday Uncle Arnold.... Thinking of you today.... Hopefully you're celebrating with your brothers and your sister-in-law..."
"Arnie was the love of my life. We had 28 years of wonderful memories. We shared joys and tears and love. In the last years I was his caregiver and devoted advocate, always there for him. He loved life, his family, he missed his daughter so much. Every one should have a great love. Always in my heart. Rest peacefully, my beloved.I will say the Kaddish for you every day of my life. Irma"
"Arnie was my former spouse. Together we made a beautiful, intelligent and in all ways wonderful daughter, Rachel. He was always there for her and loved her very much. He also accepted and adopted the daughter I had when we met, Cheryl.
Arnie had a great sense of humor and always tried to do his best in any endeavor. He was intelligent and open minded. Arnie was interested in the state of the world and approached many things scientifically. He liked to travel and explore. He was loved and will be missed by everyone he was close to."
"A handsome, strong man in his younger years,
He handled those significant duties,
Remained true to himself,
Facing many of life's fears.
Traveling was his passion,
As well as the good things in life.
His abiity was the balancing of
Pleasures and strifes.
He was blessed with a long journey
(long by some measurements,
short by others)...
But, a life that he owned robustly or quietly
Leaving his mark -
Basking in the light, before it got dark.
His last chapters were very difficult
His strength was waning, his build; slight
But his wit was 'ever-big'
And his smile, a delight.
Arnie's legacy is his lovely daughter
Who shares his adventurous spirit for living
So, his memory lives on
Because of this love - a father/daughter, sharing/giving.
My husband and I found Arnie to be a fascinating, genuine person at our first meeting and subsequently, celebrating his daughter, Rachel and our son, Dan's wedding. What a proud father! And how he enjoyed the reception with his brothers and sister that evening.
It was our good fortune to be "family" with this man and he will be
Shalom ... our dear friend.
Dann & Mary Sattel"
"I’ve known Arnie for roughly 17 years. I met him for the first time when I was dating his daughter, Rachel, early on in the relationship. He wanted to take us out to dinner at the Seventh Inn, a 5 star restaurant in west St. Louis county. I was incredibly nervous because it was such a fancy place. I remember I wore a suit and tie when I met them. Arnie laughed disarmingly and made me feel at ease – and told me to lose the tie. It made things much less formal and stressful and I was so grateful for that.
I married Rachel in the summer of 2001 and had the pleasure of having Arnie as my father-in-law for 14 years. While I can’t say that he and I had a lot in common in what we do/did for a living, we shared a love of the finer things – ice cold martinis (he liked gin and I liked vodka…but I’ve come over to the gin side of late, for which I give him credit), decaffeinated espresso, a nice cigar – some of my finest memories with him were out on my patio smoking cigars after dinner, watching MSNBC (for hours….and hours), and we both enjoyed eating out in interesting and at sometimes expensive restaurants for special occasions. He was often generous enough to pick up the check. But he had expectations of the wait staff, which was at times (for me) a bit humorous. One time he informed our waiter that “the fish was flavorless and the sauce was a cover-up.” Granted, he said this after having a chocolate martini before dinner – never a good idea – but that was Arnie. He had no filter to his opinion so you always knew where you stood. It subsequently also went a long way when he gave you a compliment.
Please give the angels my love, dear Arnie. You’ll always hold a special place in my heart."
"He was the best Dad. I love you!"
Have a suggestion for us?
