In Memory

Jim Arnshek - Class Of 1965

Jim Arnshek

Jim "Mountain Jim" Arnshek


Arnshek, Jim "Mountain Jim" 4/2/1947 - 4/10/2021 Indian River On Saturday, April 10, 2021, Jim Arnshek/Mountian Jim took off on another trail, leaving behind his sweetie Doni to take care. He was home in his cottage in the woods at peace. Jim was an Arthur Hill graduate, class of 1965. He played football, baseball, and was a great swimmer. After school, he went to work for Wiese Landscaping and Tree Nursery and was an excellent landscaper. Jim continued on with his career in Saginaw and worked at Wilson Machine, B&K Corporation, and Wright-K Technology as a Sales Engineer. Jim was a man who "did it all" during his life; hunting, skiing, traveling, kicking the dirt, snowmobiling, golf, and working on his tractor. At the end of the day, he would settle on the deck with a cocktail overlooking the river, with his arms around his sweetie, watching the sunset and being thankful for their life together. At Jim's request there will be no service or flowers, please just share great memories. When we send him off, we will toast Jim with a shot of Jack and say "See ya, Buddy." "Such a wonderful caring man, best friend, and my sweetie will be missed. Thanks, Babe."-Doni Arnshek. Nelson Funeral Home & Cremation Service

James Longhurst (Longhurst)

Awww, just learned of this having heard of Ted Martin's and David MacGregor's passing.  I had not seen Jim since we graduated.  He was a "tough guy" back in high school...but not in a negative way.  He was just someone who you did not want to mess with but was still a nice guy.  I didn't know him that well...he, I believe, went to North and I was from South.  But I still have his senior class picture in a little album!!  Condolences to his family and friends.
