    My heartfelt sympathy for your loss. Your father has left a beautiful legacy behind in the faces of you, his children and grandchildren. I can tell, by reading a little of his history and hearing a few stories about him, that many of his traditions of family, faith and zeal for life has been passed down through the generations and, therefore, his spirit will continue on through each of you. And that is a very rare and special gift of love to hold onto and treasure. I am sending my prayers and love your way today. Memory Eternal

    I will miss seeing Arman at 7:30 mass on Sundays, and occasionally visiting at the gas station after mass! He was always ready with conversation and a smile. God be with your family during this time of sadness, tears and wonderful memories.

  7. Richard L. Johnson, formally of Blaine, Minnesota

    My Condolences go out to the Schlegel Family.
    I met Arman (co-workers called him “Sam”), on March 16th, 1973, fifteen days after I turned 17-years-old, and I started my first job which was at Flame Industries (later re-named Flame Metals), in Saint Louis Park, Minnesota.
    I worked at Flame Industries for five years with Arman as my boss on second shift.
    He was a great guy to have as a boss, was smart, had a great sense of humor, and was very well-liked by others.
    We all always enjoyed listening to Arman’s stories.
    In about 2010, I stopped at the Flame Metals plant in Rogers, Minnesota, and to see him and chatted with Arman briefly.
    Today is May 9th, 2019, and I was sorry to learn today that Arman had passed.
    He will be missed.
