My sincere condolences to you and the whole family. I can tell with even just the brief time I had with Arnie in his last moments, that he is a good man. He has brought up a family who, without hesitation, would go great lengths to be with him i.e. fly in from california. He is the patriarch to a family who loves deeply which is very admirable. Diane, Heidi, Rob, Madi, I’m so very sorry for your loss of this wonderful man. I know he meant a lot to you. May God be the source of comfort to you in this tough time.
Our condolences to Diane and the entire Zueger family for the loss of our wonderful brother and brother in law. He will always be remembered for his kindness and love he showed Hedy and myself. May God Bless his Soul and give him Eternal Life and Eternal Peace.
Hedy and Phil Olson
Arnie was Grand Knight when I arrived at St. Robert of Newminster as pastor. His service to the Church, his parish and to me was greatly appreciated. May his reward in heaven be great. I will remember him at Mass.
