A. Dean Arnold Obituary

A. Dean Arnold, Age 90 of Bloomington. Born June 3, 1930 died August 11, 2020. A confident and quiet man who left a lasting legacy for all his family and friends to admire and remember. His faith in Christ was his measure of strength, a man not of the world but who’s focus was set on the beauty of the Resurrection. Born and raised in Canal Winchester Ohio. Graduated from Canal Winchester High School and soon after graduation he would meet a talkative sparky Italian woman who would complement his quiet nature. She caught his eye and attention and she would soon become his wife of 70 years, Delores Lombardi. They soon started a family and would move to Minneapolis which would become their new home. Dean worked very successfully for insurance companies as a safety inspector for many years and would enjoy retirement by taking on woodworking, home projects, reading and spending time with his family and grandchildren. He is survived by his wife, Delores; children, Dean, Cheryl (Arnold) Rue (Wade), and Mark (Kelley); grandchildren, Laura Montiel (Lorenzo), Dean R. (Courtney), Melody and Nolan Arnold; Kymberli (Rue) Kuehn (Dan), Jennifer, Deanna, and Angela Aldrich (Joshua); Elizabeth Morris (Joe), Hilary, and Olivia; great-grandchildren, Tristan, Ava, Adelyn; Samantha (Luke), Sophia, Caleb, Michael, Gabriel, Jayden; Nicholas and Teddy.
