They lived in Scribner until moving to the family farm in 1959. Arden worked at Hormel for 20 years while also farming with his dad during that time. He left Hormel and continued to do the thing he loved the most which was farming.

He was a member of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in Scribner. He served on the Farmer’s Co-op board. Arden loved all sports, particularly Husker football. He attended a lot of sporting events, especially those involving his children and grandchildren. He enjoyed bowling, golfing and a good game of cards.
