    I first met Archie in the 5th grade. Our lives often took us in different directions, but whenever we would meet up it was just as though it was yesterday. In the last few years we became even closer and often chatted on a daily basis. He was a true and loving friend and we will miss him more than words can express. Bob & Robin Lang

    Archie was a great man! I could set and listen to his stories over and over. I first met him and Sue when we moved in beside them. They both helped us out tremendously and have always been there for us even when we moved. Archie was one of kind and he truly cared for his family and friends. I feel privileged to have ever met him and cherish our friendship always! Archie you will be missed by many ! RIP ole friend! Love, Jeff, Kathy and Josh
