What a lovely man Dennis Arakelian was. It's very sad to hear of his passing. We lived next door to the Arakelian's in Crete when we were kids, and he was certainly part of the "village" that helped raise me. He seemed like the smartest man in the neighborhood when I was growing up. He knew how to fix everything, he knew what things were made of. He knew plants, animals, trees, boats, maps, shorelines, & vintage cars. He always had a calming influence and a warm demeanor. I remember how happy he and Roe were when Melissa and Denny arrived. I babysat many a night (which included watching Knight Rider with Melissa). I always thought he was a great dad. He was certainly the world's best neighbor. My most fond memory was of him coming over at a moment's notice to show me how to drive to Madison Wisconsin for college orientation. My first big trip by myself. Everyone was calm once he showed us what roads to take. I hope he is up in heaven, happy, cruising around Lake Michigan in the sky, in a big fantastic boat, with his parents and brothers, having a good time. I certainly will try and dock next to them for a quick visit when my time comes.

Rest in Peace Mr Arakelian.
Love,
Leigh Skinner Anderson
