    Arlo had great faith in Jesus. He help me be a better person at First Wesleyan. I was happy to call him my friend. Scott Werner

    Our deepest sympathy to all the family. Arlo was a dear friend to my husband Russell and me since we were classmates at Owosso Bible College. He will be missed. Our love and prayers to all the family.

    Anytime I saw him, my Uncle Arlo would always remind me how much he loved music and he would ask me to play piano for him. He especially enjoyed when I played Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony. Over the years I rarely played, but he would still ask about that song and it is probably the only thing I can still remember how to play on the piano. Anytime I play it, I always think of my Uncle Arlo. My children reminded this morning that they remember Uncle Arlo calling on the phone to thank them for the Christmas cards we would send. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. Peace and Love and Happy Memories….

    Psalm 27:1
    The Lord is my light and my salvation—
    whom shall I fear?
    The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
    of whom shall I be afraid?

    Arlo was a friend at Owosso Bible College. He was always thougthful and helpful. As night watchman, he had to unlock the girls’ dorm for me many times since I worked until 11:00 p.m. at the telephone office. I am sorry to hear of his passing, but rejoice that he has reached his eternal home. Prayers for the family.
