    Arnold Severin Grundvig Sr. passed peacefully, Saturday, May 29, 2010 with his beloved wife, Lorraine, by his side. He was born June 7, 1927, to Lenard Allen Grundvig and Geneva Arnold in Price, Utah.

    Arnold was a practical genius, a wonderful husband, Dad, Grandpa, (Papa), great-grandpa and “Unc.” He was proud of his family and he was a friend to everyone.

    If it was broken, Arnold could fix it. He fixed everything that came his way, leaving the world a better place. He worked a lot of places doing a lot of things, but his first priority was his family.

    Arnold joined the Navy at age 17, returning home to marry his sweetheart, Lorraine Dowd, in Price, Utah.

    He is survived by his wife of 63 years, his son, Arnold Jr. (Barbara), Salt Lake City; his daughter, Paula Merz (Errol Pulsipher), Murray, Utah; his grandchildren, Lorrie Pappas, Brigham City, Brigitte Hatt (Richard), Rexburg, Idaho, Jeremy Grundvig (Bridgette), Clearfield, Utah, Nicholas Grundvig (Juelee), Salt Lake City; and his great-grandchildren, Kellen, Chandler, and Athena Pappas, Sabrina Hatt, Mikayla Grundvig, Abigail Grundvig, and a great-grandson on the way.

    He was preceded in death by his parents, his in-laws, his firstborn son, Gary Butch, his daughter, Carla Lorraine, and his grandson, Lyle Zeke Francis.

    Funeral services were held June 1, 11 a.m. at the Kimball Ward, in Salt Lake City. A graveside service followed on June 2 at the Sunset Memorial Cemetery in Moab, Utah.
