David "Arnie" Arnoldussen

July 30, 1948 — January 7, 2021

David “Arnie” Arnoldussen, age 72 of Kaukauna, passed away January 7, 2021 at the place he loved to be, up north at his cottage on Lower Post Lake, Wisconsin. Dave was born July 30, 1948 to Raymond and Pearl (VandeHey) Arnoldussen. He married his high school sweetheart and the love of his life Mary (Bergman) Arnoldussen on November 8, 1968. Together they raised their 3 sons. He was a member of both St. Katharine Drexel Parish in Kaukauna and Holy Family in Elcho, Wisconsin.

Dave is survived by Mary, his loving wife of 52 years, and his 3 sons and their families: Dean Arnoldussen (Coralie Parnell) of Wonder Lake, IL, and their children Erin, Rianne, Paige and Adia; Adam (Robin) Arnoldussen of Kaukauna and their children Alex and Audrey; Nick (Erika) Arnoldussen of Appleton. He was preceded in death by his parents, one brother, Donald Arnoldussen and his wife, Tammy Arnoldussen, brothers-in-law Norbert Fox, Charles Walker, mother-in- law Margaret Bergman, and father-in- law John P. Bergman. Also surviving are his brother Charles (Karen) Arnoldussen, his sister Charlene (Ron) Ehlers, and brother Dennis (Mary) Arnoldussen; sisters-in-law Nancy (Butch) Miller, JoAnn Fox, and Sandy Walker, along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Dave did what he loved to do all his life. He started Arn’s Cabinets with his father Ray in 1976, then later took it over teaching his two sons, Nick and Adam, who later took over the business. His son Dean, mechanical engineer, also inherited his dad’s love of wood working.

In 1996, he and three others started Fox Valley Mission Group. Over the course of 25 years, he has volunteered both domestically and internationally, with Nicaragua being a place he and Mary both held so close to their hearts. Dave has gone over 25 times, with some of the most memorable being those where some of his children and grandchildren accompanied him. They considered Nicaragua their second home.

Dave’s family has many cherished memories of the time spent with him.

A private funeral liturgy will be held for the family. This mass will be livestreamed on this page at 11:00 AM on Thursday, January 14, 2021.


Dave, Love you forever. I will miss so much hearing, “Night, Mar.” Until we meet again. Yours, Mary.


Grandpa, Thank you for all the fun memories from the outdoor activities and adventures that we shared. Love, all your grandchildren.


Dad, Thank you so much for your constant love and guidance and for teaching us about life and what is important.  Love, Dean, Adam, and Nick.  WWDD
