    Our Love and sympathy goes out to you Barbara and family in your loss. We were the first renters Barbara and Arlen ever had. They were awesome landlords and even better friends. Tim remembers the lawn mower rides around the yard from Arlen when they babysat newborn Ashley while we purchased our current home. Thanks so much for the wonderful memories Arlen.

    Condolences on Arlen’s passing. He was a double-cousin to me thru the Strawn connection. Our Grandparents on the parental side were Brothers Albert Martin Kuntz & John L Kuntz married
    Sisters Selma & Lena Shroen.
    We grew up in Chatsworth, Ill . Arlen on the west side of the park and me on the east side. He did some interesting things as a youngster. In 2011, Arlen came up to me during the Heritage Days School Reunion and asked my name. I did not recognize him as he was so much taller than I was many years ago. That was the first time I had seen Arlen in over 50 yrs.

    His posted picture looks just like his Dad, Herbert ‘BOB’.

    With Christain Love to you all, Arlen’s Family. Jim Kuntz

    My prayers go out to the family. I wish I would have known Arlen, he was my 4th cousin 1x removed. His great great grandmother, Catharina Elisabeth Steinberg Schröen and my great great grandfather Johann Heinrich Steinberg were brother and sister. I would love to get to know my cousins.

    Almost a year had past and I can only imagine you up in heaven eating ice cream, and looking down on us. I love you with all my heart, until we meet again.
