On March 20, 1983, he married the love of his life, Jaemie Denise Huff, in Pasadena, Calif. They would have celebrated their 30th anniversary on the 20th of this month.
He worked civil service for the Department of Defense for over 20 years and also as a manager at McDonalds for the last 15 years. He was a member of United Church of God in Lawton. Arch enjoyed swimming, being outdoors, working out, talking to everyone, playing games with his family, eating all his food and your food if allowed, and ending his day soaking in the hot tub. God and his family were always the greatest joys in his life. His family shared a bond like no other and his constant smile and positivity touched all that knew him. He will forever be missed by all who loved him and may we strive to make him proud by continuing to live life to the fullest as he always did.
