On March 2, 1963, Arley married Patsy Rosanske and she preceded him in on May 14, 2003. Together they farmed for many years and Arley loved to work the land with his John Deere tractor. In his early years, Arley was employed at Speed Queen in Wautoma and later retired in 1993 from Morgan Doors in Oshkosh. Not one to sit still, Arley went to work for the Omro Community Center for several years. He enjoyed gardening, taking trips, polka music, and reading western books. Of all these things, Arley’s greatest joy was the love of his children and five grandsons.
