James (Pete) Arbaugh



James (Pete) Arbaugh passed away Saturday, Dec. 15, 2013, at the Crescent Bay boat launch.

He was doing what he loved; fishing, but his heart failed him.

He was born in Arkansas in 1945. His family moved often.

He leaves behind Christie, his beloved wife of 30 years.

Pete is also survived by one of his 6 brothers, Bill and his wife Bobbi as well as a sister-in-law, Esther. Plus too many younger relatives to list.

Pete was in the Navy during the Vietnam War but was fortunate to be based in Maine. He has been cremated and there will be no services at his request.

Pete spent his recent years fishing, boating, swimming and going to garage sales.

Until age caught up to him, Pete enjoyed long hikes in the Cascades and loved snowmobiling. His entire life, his passion was to make people laugh and take care of the people he loved. He will be dearly missed.
