Arneson, Michael Eugene Sr. (10 MAY 1955 - 22 JUL 2017)

Michael Eugene Arneson, Sr., 62 of Stanley, died Saturday, July 22nd at his home under the care of St. Joseph's Hospice. He was born on May 10, 1955 at Victory Memorial Hospital to the
late Alvin and Donna (Nerdrum) Arneson. He grew up in the Stanley area and attended Stanley-Boyd Schools.

He was united in marriage to Kathryn Sczypioroski. Together they had three children and remained lifelong friends. In Mike’s younger years he enjoyed working with his Dad on his hobby farm milking cows and later raising feeder pigs. He later moved onto the farm and continued to raise animals including goats and chickens; along with his pet dogs.

He worked with his uncle doing upholstery work for a short time and then worked at the Stanley Corporation. Mike worked as an Iron Worker with his Dad trying for his journeyman’s but before time was completed his dad became ill and passed away. He wanted more so he went on to be a construction worker helping to build homes.

Later he went to school and became a Truck Driver for H.O. Wolding. Mike also drove truck delivering loads for Welded Co. and Precision CO on the pipeline. In later years he purchased a
bar in Owen-Mike’s Place. He also cut and sold firewood. There were no jobs he could not do. Mike also could overhaul a motor and fix machines. He definitely stayed “busy.” Mike enjoyed gardening, cooking, fishing, country music, sitting around the camp fire with family and friends and was always willing to help a friend. May you have peace!

He is survived by his three children, Tammy (Mark Anderson) Samplawski of Stanley, Michael (Samantha Salo) Arneson, JR of Iron River, MI and Amy (Tom) Schumacher of Menomonie, five grandsons, Christopher (Katelynn) Samplawski, Jacob Samplawski, Austin Mahal, Corbin Schumacher, Dredyn Arneson and one great grandson, Bentley Samplawski, his sisters, Debbie (John) Pace of Champlin, MN, Dawn (Dan) Manier of Stanley, Diane (Doug) Walters of Cadott, Darlene (Mike) Schmitt of Boyd and Denise (Jeff) Klopp of Fall Creek and his aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Mike is preceded in death by his parents Alvin and Donna Arneson, his paternal grandparents, Alfred and Rose (Anderson) Arneson and his maternal grandparents, Harley and Nora (Brandtness) Nerdrum.

A funeral service will be at NOON on Wednesday, July 26th at Our Savior's Lutheran Church-Stanley with Pastor Kenneth Schmidt officiating. Visitation will be from 10AM until time of
service Wednesday at the church. Burial will take place at a later date in Evergreen Cemetery-Stanley.
