Arnold W. Roepke, 66, of Guttenberg, passed away Saturday, April 29, 2023, at his home surrounded by his family.

Visitation was Monday, May 1, at Morris Funeral Home in Guttenberg and before services at the church.

Funeral services were Tuesday, May 2, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Guttenberg, conducted by Rev. Marvin Bries.

Arnold was born on March 14, 1957, in Dubuque, the son of Richard and Dolores (Nivarel) Roepke. He graduated from Guttenberg High School in 1975 and enjoyed a long career working primarily within the Local 234 Operator’s Union until he retired early in 2017. Arnold was a spirited soul, who loved socializing and sharing wild stories of his life’s greatest adventures with anyone who would listen. He was never short of wise cracks and loved to joke around with the best of them. As an avid golfer, Arnold spent many weekends amongst friends perfecting his swing on the greens of a variety of local courses.

Arnold’s greatest loves were his children and his grandchildren. He took great pride in watching them grow and cherished every minute spent together on his farm, four wheeling, hunting, and taking rides on his side-by-side. 

Arnold is survived by his children: Ashley (Chris) Dugan of Earlville and Adam (Amy) Roepke of Marion; grandchildren, Seth, Kloie, and Grant Dugan, Harrison and Madilyn Roepke; siblings, Connie Roepke, Richard Jr. (Sherry) Roepke, and Diane Roepke.

Arnold was preceded in death by his parents and his oldest sibling, Mike Roepke.

Information is available at Memorials may be sent to Morris Funeral Home (in care of the deceased), 207 S. First St., Guttenberg, IA 52052.
