Arlan proudly served his country as a Veteran with the United States Marine Corp. His unwavering dedication and selflessness are testaments to his character and bravery.

Arlan's creativity extended to jewelry making as well. He found joy in crafting unique pieces that were cherished by family and friends.

When not immersed in music or creating beautiful jewelry, Arlan found solace in bass fishing and playing pool. These activities allowed him to relax and connect with nature. His family fondly remembers the times when Arlan would zoom around in his scooter chair, bringing laughter and joy to those around him.

Arlan's memory will forever live on in the hearts of his loved ones. He is survived by his devoted wife of 43 years, Carolyn Robin Burghdoff. Their union was a testament to love, commitment, and shared experiences. Together they created a beautiful family that will continue to honor Arlan's legacy.
