Not sure what to say?

Oh how we'll miss our, funny good looking guy...we have great memories but we miss him already. Riva, we'll have things to laugh about for a long time to come.

Arnie was one of a kind. Always a smirky smile, something provocative to say, and a ton of love to give. He was the reason we had the ski house in Ascutney. Along with my dad Bunny (and eventually Saul), Arnie led our large, lifelong extended ski family and the memories that brings me solace today. XOXO

Arnie was one of a kind. Always a smirky smile, something provocative to say, and full of love for all. I cherish memories of him driving us into the wilds of Vermont. Long live our memories of the wonderful extended ski family headed by Arnie, Bunny and eventually Saul, that started in Manchester Depot, moved to Ascutney, and continues to bring me solace today. XOXO

Loved Arnie and proud to say he was a friend.

Memories of Arnie helping a neighbor,Ethel, get her car out of her garage. Memories of all of you on Wildwood Drive. My sympathies to the Smolen family . Penny Merriam Orange CT

I was very sad to hear of Arnies passing. I remember him with a smile on my face. Ski trips, riding in the back seat heading to the mountains. Only fond memories of Arnie. He has moved to a new place and you will keep him around forever with stories and photos. Love Angel
