Celebrating the life of Arnold Arthur Trachte
Thank you for signing Arnold Arthur Trachte's Guestbook
Our deepest and sincerest condolences to the family. Words alone can not ease the pain when grieving the loss of a love one. The Bible provides comfort during these difficult times. Revelation 21:3-4 states, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away". May God give you and your family comfort in your loving memories and in His promise that soon we will never experience losing our loved ones in death and we will be able to see them again once they resurrected as per John 5:28-29. May these words give you a new hope, with deepest sympathy and warmth of heart.

From my wife and I, our deepest condolences on the passing of Arnie. When I received Jennifer's FB message I had a difficult time believing what was sent.
Arnie and I go back to 1970. I remember when I started at Rayovac: Arnie was the QC Manager at the Madison Plant. Our paths crossed many times over the years even though Arnie worked at Wonewoc, Fennimore and Kinston. At one time we worked in the same Engineering Department in Madison. I remember our noon time walks around the Green Tree residential area on Madison's west side and on the Capital Square.
I always looked forward to Arnie's annual visit to our house when he came to visit in Wisconsin. It was our opportunity to catch up on old times and reminisce about people we once knew. We also kept in contact via email and then Arnie started to call. The last telephone call I received from Arnie was the day before his surgery. That is one phone call I will always remember.
On one's journey through life one may have the opportunity to meet an exceptional person what will always be remembered in our life time. When you meet them, they are the real deal: a person on integrity and of high moral standards. Arnie was that person. It was my honor to have known Arnie. I lost a good friend, however Allene and her family lost much more. I will never forget Arnie. Rest in peace.
Once again, our blessings to Allene and all of the Trachte's during this very difficult time.

Annie was such a gentle and loving man... always a great husband, father, and grandfather! He was always available with a helping hand and a smile on his face. We wish the family peace and insight to gather strength and calm from those who love them!
