Obituary for Robert C. Arnestad

Robert (Buster) C. Arnestad
11/16/1928 - 1/6/2019

The youngest and last survivor of 8 siblings, Buster was a firecracker. He had a zest for life that he carried through to the end, which, together with his generous heart, was the greatest gift he left to all who knew him. Buster is survived by the love of his life and wife of 68 years, Beverly L. (Von Rotz) Arnestad. Together they loved and supported 5 children: Ed, Julie (Jim), Don (Julie), Dick (Barb), and Cheri (Noel), 14 grandchildren and 22 great-grandchildren,
all deeply grieving Buster’s death.
Buster boxed in the Golden Gloves, owned a printing business, and then worked in Tacoma as a longshoreman for nearly 40 years. After retiring he filled his time farming, restoring old cars, commercial fishing, and hunting. Always loyal, Buster hunted deer every Fall from the same mountains 75 years running. Card playing kitchen tables and Lacamas Bingo Hall will miss Buster’s big smile and infectious laugh.
A viewing will be held Monday, January 14, at Fir Lane Memorial Park in Spanaway from 2 – 7 pm. A memorial service will be held on Tuesday, January 15, at Fir Lane beginning at 1 pm, reception to follow. We will be wearing flannel shirts in honor of Buster’s love of
the great outdoors.
