Philip Lawrence Arneson age 59 of Elk Mound passed away on August 21, 2018 at home.
Philip was born to Durward and Marietta (Goettl) Arneson on November 12, 1958 in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin. He was the oldest of five children. He married Nancy Jean Lund on January 13, 1979 at Rock Creek Lutheran Church of Rock Falls Wisconsin.
Phil helped on his family’s farm while he was growing up, which impacted his decision to continuing farming as he got older. He farmed all his life from the time he was first able to work on the farm to the day he died. When he wasn’t laboring in the fields, he spent a lot of time in his extremely large garden. Phil loved to play practical jokes on his neighbors, but was always there to lend a helping hand when someone was in need. His biggest passions in life were hunting, fishing, watching sports, and in the last few years being a beloved grandpa.
Philip is survived by his wife of 39 years; Nancy, their three sons; Christopher, Dennis (Kristin) and their children Colin and Brede, and Jamie Arneson, brothers; Timothy (Carolyn) of Castle Hayne, North Carolina, and Steven Arneson of Cornell, sisters; Edith (Bob) Jedrzejewski of Chippewa Falls, and Barbara (Donney) Bresina of Cornell.
He will be dearly missed by all his family and friends.
