ENID, Okla. — Funeral service for Leroy Arthur Arndt will be 2 p.m. Friday, July 18, 2014, at Alva First Christian Church, with Pastor Ron Pingelton officiating. Interment will be at Alva Municipal Cemetery under the direction of Marshall Funeral Home of Alva.
Leroy Arthur Arndt, son of Davey “Maynard” and Katharina Jean (Schmitt) Arndt, was born Dec. 30, 1953, in Hardtner, Kan., and passed away Monday, July 14, 2014, in Oklahoma City, at the age of 60 years, 6 months and 14 days.
Leroy attended Farry School, graduated from Alva High School and attended Northwestern Oklahoma State University.
On May 22, 1976, he was united in marriage to Glenda Jo Wimmer in Alva, Okla.
He worked for a time at Wheat’s Western Store as a leather craftsman, and also worked on the farm. He was a gifted brick mason for over 40 years, practicing his artistry with perfection in Oklahoma, Kansas, Texas and Arizona. He left his mark in many different homes, fireplaces and projects all over Alva, including the Centennial Wall and the entrance to NWOSU. According to fellow bricklayer, Raymond Knabe, “Leroy was a true artist in the field of masonry. He always took pride in his work no matter what he was building.”
He was a member of Alva Moose Lodge and the National Rifle Association. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, skeet shooting, gardening and farming, but his greatest joy was spending time with his grandkids.
Leroy is survived by his wife, Glenda of Alva; three children, Lori Caviness and husband John, Erica Lane and husband J.J., and Dallas Arndt, all of Alva; his parents, Maynard and Katharina Arndt of Alva; three sisters, Teresa Sutter and husband Ed, Tena Martin and husband Mike, and Rita Peterson and husband Miles, all of Alva; and five grandchildren, Huston, Avery and Nixon Lane, and Kaden and Kylie Caviness; and other relatives and many friends.
