Arnie Ziegler

November 28, 1946 - June 20, 2010


Arnie Ziegler
Nov 28, 1946 – June 20, 2010
Age 63
Arnie entered into the presence of the Lord after a short, hard-fought battle with a respiratory ailment, surrounded by his wife, children and grand-children.
Arnie is survived by Ellen, his loving wife of 38 years; his daughter, Karen, her husband Garrett and their children Ezekiel and Olive; his son David and his wife Lyndsay; his sisters Dianna, Karo-Lee and Darlene and his brothers Dan and Gary and all his nieces and nephews.
Arnie proudly served various communities in BC and the Northwest Territories as an RCMP officer, retiring as a Sergeant in the Oliver detachment in 1999 after 32 years of service. He later worked for the BC Coroner Service for a number of years before retiring completely in 2007.
Known for his sense of humour and fun-loving spirit, Arnie could be found wherever there was laughter. Arnie was an artist, avid golfer, curler and sports fan. He loved the outdoors, camping with his family, fishing with his friends and cowboying.
Arnie loved the Lord, his family and his friends. He is well loved.
A memorial service will be held at 11:00 A.M. Friday June 25, 2010 at the Oliver Alliance Church with Pastor Jeremy Cook officiating.
In lieu of flowers, his family has requested that donations be sent to the South Okanagan Similkameen Medical Foundation in Arnie’s name.

Ellen and family – I was very saddened to hear about Arnie. As you know he was my trainer and I always considered myself very fortunate to have had such a kind and knowledgeable person guide me through those first years. I could not have asked for a better trainer or friend. My deepest sympathies to all of you.
