May 5, 1939 ~ November 11, 2017

Arnold Dal Bruley, known to all by Arnie, passed away November 11, 2017 at the age of 78. Arnie was born in Brush Prairie, WA on May 5, 1939.
Growing up working on the family farm gave him the love of farm equipment and machinery which carried through all his life.
Most people remember Arnie as a salesman at Acme Construction Supply and by his service at church and in mission work. He was known for his kindness, his love for people and his jokes. He loved his family, his Lord, and he was a friend to everyone.
He is survived by his loving wife of 18 years, Randi; two sons and daughter-in-laws, Jim and Marcie Mason and Jeremi and Stephanie Smith; two daughters and son-in-laws, Jill and Jon Lettow and Ron and Tammy Conley; his sister Sylvia Smith and his brother Dean Bruley. He has five grandchildren, Vanessa Lyman, Angelina and Timothy Smith, Brynna Lettow, and Michael Conley.
He was preceded in death by his parents, his first wife Paulette Bruley, and his brother Larry Bruley.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at Peoples Church, 6801 East Mill Plain Blvd., Vancouver, WA on December 2, 2017 at 3:00 p.m.

Dear Randi,
When I came across Arnie's obituary in the Colombian I was so shocked. Arnie was such a special and kind man and I am thankful for the time I got to spend with him as his caregiver. I will always cherish the bond him and his Roomate had and the wonderful stories he would try to tell me. Sending love to you and your family during this time.
