Obituary

DIRK THOMAS ARNOLD
In Denver, Colorado, on September 6, 1962 Dirk Thomas Arnold was born to Claude Arnold and Erma (Schultz) Arnold. At the age of two they moved to Red Lodge Montana. Then they moved to Absaroka. His parents divorced when he was quite young. He attended 2 years of Kindergarten in Absaroka because his teacher Mrs. Schrumpf said he was not ready to move on. That is where his building and mechanical side started showing up as one of his great characteristics. His teacher would often sit him away from the others, so he wouldn’t talk, by a window with clay. Mrs. Schrumpf said he would make amazing little animals and buildings.
He, His mom and sister moved between Glendive, Red Lodge and Billings for several years. When He was in 6th grade, they bought the house on Terrace Dr. He attended West High School, with the thought of becoming a pilot. Dirk Thomas loved adventure and would say he was a “man’s man”. When he was 12-13 his mom would take him and his friends to Red Lodge to back pack for the weekends. His mom taught him to ski early on, which became one of his many passions. He ski raced for many years and then started coaching it as he grew older. He coached at Red Lodge Mountain, Garmisch- Partenkirchen Germany, Copper Mountain Colorado. One year he had no summer as he coached at Copper Mountain then went to New Zealand to coach. Then back to Copper Mountain. While there he met and married Jennifer Stielow. They moved to Santa Fe, New Mexico to ski coach. After two years he became the Head coach of Rocky Mountain College’s ski team and he was able to move back home. They divorced in 2000 this was hard on him but because he had a tender heart to listen to friends and God, Dirk decided to move on with life and started working construction full time. He met his wife Christine in 2001 and they were married on August 10, 2002. He enjoyed construction and contracting but loved talking more with the sub-contractors and suppliers. They had a son whom he loved deeply. Noah was his companion to teach all his abilities to and to be outside doing adventure together. There was nothing Dirk couldn’t do: hiking, backpacking, climbing, mountain bike riding, dirt bike riding, fishing (fly, and regular), mechanics, fixing anything broken.
Dirk Thomas Arnold was lifted by the Father’s Righteous Right hand to glory Tuesday evening March 30, 2021. He is survived by his: wife and son (Christine and Noah), mother (Erma Arnold), sister (Christy Davidson), brother (Mike Stock), nephew (Trevor Arnold) and numerous cousins and friends.
He will be sorely missed by all as he never met anyone who stayed a stranger very long.
DIRKISM: “What do ya think?”, He always gave 110% and expected it of others!
In lieu of gifts and flowers, please send memorials to CLDI 24 S. 29th ST, Billings, MT 59102 (or online), or to a charity of your choice.
