Arlie LaVerne Nass

El Paso - Arlie LaVerne Nass, 91, went home to join the Lord on Saturday, April 10, 2021.

Arlie was born in Hettinger, ND, (Teepee Butte Township) on June 7, 1929. He left school in ninth grade to work on the family farm. In 1951, he joined the United States Army and proudly served for three years. Following an honorable discharge, he worked at a dairy farm in Dickinson, ND, then moved on to Farmers Union Gas, in Regent, ND. It was there he began dating the love of his life, Cornelia (Corrie) Jacobs. They soon ran away to El Paso, TX, where they married in 1956.

In February of that year Arlie began a 25-year career with the El Paso Fire Department. All the while, due to his natural skills, he built a second career doing construction projects - primarily concrete, building, and woodwork. He retired as Captain at Fire Station #23 in 1981. All his life, he was the go-to handyman for many friends and neighbors.

At home, Arlie was a natural at playing the accordion and mandolin, and loved to dance. He could be found many a Saturday night stepping out with his bride at Tom Bell's club. For many years he and Corrie were members of the Loyal Order of Moose, where he did much skilled work for the local chapter. He had an amazing talent for woodworking, and constructed many small, clever wooden creations … all of which he gave away to family and friends.

Arlie was preceded in death by his parents, Carl and Mildred Nass, and his siblings, Georgine Wolff and Dale Nass. He is survived by his sister, Eileen Kroll, and leaves behind his wife of 64 years, Cornelia, and his children, Shelly Bohren, Steven Nass and Charles Nass.

Arlie was truly one in a million, with a heart of gold and a sense of humor like no one else. He will be remembered fondly by all who were blessed to know him.

His services will be held at Sunset Funeral Home, 4631 Hondo Pass, on Wednesday, April 21, 2021, at 2:00pm, and will include honors from the El Paso Fire Department. Visitation will be from 1:00 - 3:00pm on the same day. Private burial will be held Thursday morning at Ft. Bliss National Cemetery and will include El Paso Fire Department and military honors.

Arlie LaVerne Nass, de 91 años, partió a su hogar para unirse al Señor el sábado 10 de abril del 2021. Arlie nació en Hettinger, Dakota del Norte (municipio de Teepee Butte) el 7 de junio de 1929. Dejó la escuela en noveno grado para trabajar en la granja familiar. En 1951, se unió al Ejército de Estados Unidos y sirvió con orgullo durante tres años. Después de una baja honorable, trabajó en una granja lechera en Dickinson, ND, luego se mudó a Farmers Union Gas, en Regent, ND. Fue allí donde comenzó a salir con el amor de su vida, Cornelia (Corrie) Jacobs. Pronto se escaparon a El Paso, TX, donde se casaron en 1956. En febrero de ese año, Arlie comenzó una carrera de 25 años en el Departamento de Bomberos de El Paso. Mientras tanto, debido a sus habilidades naturales, construyó una segunda carrera en proyectos de construcción, principalmente concreto, construcción y carpintería. Se jubiló como Capitán en la Estación de Bomberos #23 en 1981. Durante toda su vida, fue el que ayudó a los arreglos de muchos amigos y vecinos. En casa, Arlie era natural para tocar el acordeón y la mandolina, y le encantaba bailar. Se le podía encontrar muchos sábados por la noche saliendo con su novia en Tom Bell's Club. Durante muchos años, Corrie y él fueron miembros de la Leal Orden de Moose, donde realizó un trabajo muy hábil para el capítulo local. Tenía un talento increíble para la carpintería y construyó muchas creaciones de madera pequeñas e inteligentes... todas las cuales regaló a familiares y amigos. A Arlie le precedieron en muerte sus padres Carl y Mildred Nass, y sus hermanos Georgine Wolff y Dale Nass. Le sobrevive su hermana Eileen Kroll, y deja a su esposa por 64 años, Cornelia, y a sus hijos, Shelly Bohren, Steven Nass y Charles Nass. Arlie era verdaderamente una en un millón, con un corazón de oro y sentido del humor como nadie. Será recordado con cariño por todos quienes tuvieron la bendición de conocerlo. Sus servicios se llevarán a cabo en Sunset Funeral Home, en el 4631 Hondo Pass, el miércoles 21 de abril del 2021 a las 2:00 p.m. e incluirá honores del Departamento de Bomberos de El Paso. El velorio será de 1:00 p.m. a 3:00 p.m. el mismo día.

Capt. Nass,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice-first for our Country when you served with the U.S. Army and later for the citizens of El Paso when you served with the EPFD. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.
Mike Casey
