Steven A. Arnold
April 2, 1940 - Oct. 26, 2021
Portland resident Steve Arnold passed away peacefully at his home Oct. 26, 2021.
Steve attended George Elementary School, and Roosevelt High School – graduating in 1958. He attended Portland State University for one year before attending four years of trade school to become an electrician.
He married Darleen Ferres Aug. 19, 1962. They started out living in North Portland – St. Johns area, where their two children were born. They built their own home on 18 acres on Sauvie Island in 1973. In 1977, they moved back to the North Portland area to raise their two children. In 1990, with both children grown and moved out, Steve and Darleen decided to pursue a dream, and built a floating home which was located on the Multnomah Channel. Then in 1999, with Steve getting close to retirement, they moved once again, to build a house in Scappoose. They wanted a low maintenance home so they could travel. They lived in this house until 2004 when Darleen passed away.
Steve then met Carol Bevans through mutual friends. The two spent the past 17 years traveling the United States in their truck and travel trailer, and cruising the globe on several cruises.
Steve Arnold was well loved, and survived by his family. Brother – Phil Arnold. Children – Dan Arnold and Debby Dummer. Grandchildren – Justin Pickens, Dylan Arnold, Matthew Dummer and Danielle Arnold. Great-grandchildren – Jason Pickens, Jeremiah Pickens and Bronx Arnold. He was predeceased by his granddaughter, Olivia Dummer.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 1 p.m., Saturday, Jan. 29, 2022, at the St. Helens Elk Lodge.
