He was predeceased by his father Jacob Kasdorf. Arnie was born November 7, 1961, in Curitiba, Brazil, the youngest in a family of 13 children. When Arnie was seven years old, he moved to Canada with his family. A plumber by trade, Arnie worked with his brothers in a family-owned business for many years. Arnie was deeply committed to his family and his wife of 21 years. From the time his children were infants, Arnie was a full-time stay-at-home father, throwing his passion into raising his kids, nurturing and encouraging their strengths, and taking great pride in them. When they started school, he continued to support them by volunteering at their school. He was also actively involved in their church as a teacher and youth sponsor, as well as in the community. Arnie had an exuberant personality. His artistic spirit enabled him to create a warm, elegant and beautiful home for his family. He and Helen loved hosting gatherings for family and friends. A funeral service will be held Thursday, October 22 at 10:30 a.m., at Douglas Mennonite Church, 1517 Rothesay Ave., Winnipeg, MB
