  1. Doug and family, The Reinert’s have so many memories of your dad, your mom, and your family. I’m not going to start sharing all those memories here, or I would have to write a book; but, I do want you to know how much your family means to us. Your dad just stood out above the rest. He was always a GOOD MAN. We loved your folks and we love you. You helped us so much when Jim passed. If there is anything we can do to help you in any way, please let us know. You are in our thoughts and prayers. God will provide you the strength for each challenging day. We too will miss your dad.

  2. Arlan & Loretta were both tremendous mentors and wonderful friends of mine ever since I was a kid. I learned most of what I know about aviculture from them.
    Arlan probably forgot more information about pheasants than most of the rest of us could ever hope to learn. All the time I knew him he never once bragged about how much he knew or all the things he had done over the years, although he sure had every right to. He was a very humble and modest man, and so willing to share his wisdom with others. I really cherish all the memories I have of him. I want to apologize to the Vaughn family for not being able to attend the funeral. I would also like to ask their permission to forward his obituary to a couple of bird related publications and to the Rocky Mtn Pheasant & Waterfowl Assn. to run in their newsletter.

  3. Our family did the best we could to help him along. I sure will miss having him up for dinner. I always knew he appreciated being fed at our home. I hope my family remembers that he always said, “It looks good enough to eat”. He always made me feel like I knew what I was doing in the kitchen!

    Our kids will miss the frequent “Beer Money” he would give them on occasion as well.

    Rest in peace “Daddypa”! We will miss you. 🙁

  4. Sorry to hear about Arlan, i did not know him that well but seem to be good honest man. I use to display engines & tractors at the antique shows next to him.
