ARNOLD F. "ARNIE" FALEY
October 23, 1938 ~ April 4, 2015
"Arnie was a quiet man, very caring,
undemanding, and loved his family and
visiting with friends. He will be missed."

Arnold "Arnie" F. Faley, 76, passed away from Parkinson's and Lewy Body Dementia on April 4, 2015. He was born in Skagway, AK on Oct. 23, 1938 to Alfred and Gertrude (Odell) Faley. As a young child, the family moved to Vancouver, WA. Arnie went to school at Barberton, Shumway, and Fort Vancouver. His class was the first graduating class from Hudson's Bay High School. He played basketball and was on the swim team. He also attended Clark College and excelled in drafting.
Arnie worked in the engineering departments at Moore Oregon, Lumber Systems and Tidland Corp. He eventually opened Design Tech in July 1976. He designed lumber handling and plywood stacking equipment. Arnie opened Hazel Dell Blueprint and Rose City Blueprint in Portland in the early 80s. In 1999, both businesses were sold and he retired.
He and wife Jackie enjoyed playing golf and taking motorhome/golf trips with friends. They also spent several winters in Yuma and Casa Grande. Arnie enjoyed the beach and had a nice home in Ocean Park on the golf course. He loved tinkering in his wood shop and built several decks on houses they lived in. Arnie loved Clint Eastwood Westerns and the Portland Trailblazers. He played poker (had an unbeatable poker face), pinochle, and took the bus to the Casino.
Arnie is survived by his wife, Jackie, of 44 years in Washougal, WA; brother, Bill (Dawn) Faley of Ridgefield, WA; son, Tracey (Tami) Faley of Kalama, WA; daughter, Corrine Kroon of Castle Rock, WA; a step-daughter, Pam (David) O'Brien of Washougal, WA; three grandsons and two great-granddaughters.
He was preceded in death by his parents; and son, Brian Faley of Long Beach, WA.
An open house will be held at Orchard Hills Golf Club at a later date.
Donations may be made to the West Columbia Gorge Humane Society of Washougal, WA.
Straub's Funeral Home and Columbia River Cremation in Camas is in charge of arrangements.
