    Sending all my love to you and your family Nina, so very sorry for your loss and thinking of you during this difficult time. You are in my prayers.

    Oh man, I’m so sorry to see this. I worked with Ardie at Meuniers for a few years. He was the absolute funniest man. He made coming to work a total joy. I only had the pleasure of running into him a few times in the past 30 years but everyone was like we just picked up from when we were kids. Prayers and thoughts of comfort to his family.

  3. Barb Noren

    • Al Stolz

      So sorry for your loss! I last saw Ardie around 4 years ago. Used to work with him at Ashley Furniture years ago. Miss those good times. Ardie was a pleasure to work with. Sorry we weren’t able to make the visitation.

    Nina & Family

    I’m so sorry to hear the loss of the greatest man! Your all in my prayers!

    I’ll never forget ya, Ard! We had some great times and I even learned a thing or two from you…how to sneak into the Fair from the back way and to appreciate the pleasures of Levi Garrett chewing tobacco. I’ll never forget that Firebird (always envied you that magnificent machine) and I discovered the hard way that one should never take you for a ride on a motorcycle. But you were truly one to ride the river with and I cherish our times together…coon or deer hunting or just having a little fun with the ole Skinflint himself, Jerome. There was never a dull moment when Ard was around. I will miss you, old friend. Till we meet again…

  7. Marie Flock

    You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May his strength and love be with you always.♥️

      My Sympathy to Ardie’s entire family.

  8. Mike and Diana Symitczek

    Ardie was one of a kind, we all agree on that. The world was a better place with him in it. I think his life goal was to make everyone smile and laugh and he definitely was good at that.
    Now he has everyone in Heaven roaring with laughter.
    He will forever have memories in our heart.

    • Diane Tuxen (Dee)

      Nina, my heart aches for you as your beloved Ardie moves from your life together to his forever with his God. This man has brought you so much life and love. May the love of all your family and friends help you through this difficult time. Sending love.

    Ken and I wish to send our sympathies to Nina and family. Our thoughts are with Randy and Laurie also.

  13. Teenie Sonsalla

    Ardie was one of the funnest and funniest people I will ever know in this lifetime! From being chased by a bull to jumping out of a truck for a 2 hour visit you will be missed my friend. Keep ’em laughing up their Ard and see you again on the other side!
