With heavy hearts we announce the peaceful passing of Arnold Steiner on November 6th 2015 at Noric House with his family by his side. He leaves to mourn his daughter Margaret Sargent (Richard), son Robert Steiner (Lisa), granddaughters Emily (Niko) and Lillie, foster son Shane Malloy, (Tanya) and their sons Jack and Hank, and Arnold’s siblings, Karen, Judy Neudorf (George), Elroy Steiner (Nadine) and Sherry Slovak (Ivan) and extended family. Arnold was predeceased by Rose, his wife of 56 years.
Arnold was born in Humboldt Saskatchewan on October 28th, 1933. He was the oldest of 5 children. Arnold met his wife Rose in 1951, and they married in 1955.
Arnold was not one to follow the beaten path, he started up his own law practice lasting 50 years, with his wife Rose playing a large role by working to put him through school and then managing things at the office.
Arnold was heavily involved in property development all over the Okanagan. We spent many weekends as a family driving to the latest property and watching the development progress. His hard work financed many enjoyable family vacations over the years.
Arnold enjoyed his daily walks, playing chess, and talking business with his friends. He was an avid reader of many topics, and had a real thirst for knowledge. Arnold was very intelligent, and he enjoyed helping others by sharing his wisdom.
Arnold had a never ending positive attitude and tenacity that served him well in life. He will be most remembered for this.
A family graveside service was held on November 13th and will be followed by a family reunion next summer to remember Arnold.
Those wishing to do so, may make a donation to their favourite charity in lieu of flowers.
