Arnold H Rosdahl Sr

July 24, 1936 — August 4, 2022

Arnold H. Rosdahl Sr. joined his Lord and Savior on August 4th where he is having the most

amazing reunion. Arnold “Arnie” was born in Billings, Montana on July 24, 1936, to Arne and

Bernice Rosdahl. He joined the Navy in his Junior year and served his Country for three years

during the Korean war. Shortly after, he met the love of his life and best friend of 64 years, Mary

Davis. They met at a dance in Dillon, Montana on July 4, 1958 and knew they’d be together

forever. They were married in Sheridan Montana August 16, 1958.

Arnie was a passionate and talented rancher. He, along with his family, served the Madison and

Ruby Valleys for several years. His skills and experience led to his success as a dedicated

ranch manager for 19 years with Combs Cattle Company and 18 years with the Bar 7 Ranch.

He truly believed in hard-work. One of his many “Arnieisms” (words of wisdom) is “the only job

you can get by starting at the top is digging a post hole.”

His signature smile and eye sparkle were a wonderful testament of his playful sense of humor.

Another one of his famous “Arnieisms” is “if he ain’t in the way, he is comin’ to get in the way.”

(meaning someone is incompetent). Arnie never met a stranger and everyone he met became

family. Family truly meant everything to him.

Arnie is survived by his loving wife, Mary Rosdahl, his precious children Arnold Jr. “Punch”

(Sylvia) Rosdahl, Lori (Bruce) Hayward, Avis (Ricky) Rost, Teresa (Kevin) Rockwood, and Amy

(Brand) McBride. He is also survived by 12 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren.

There will be a viewing available at K & L Mortuary in Sheridan, Montana on Friday, August 12th
