Brodhead – Lowell A. Arnsmeier, age 79, of Brodhead, WI, passed away peacefully at his home on Tuesday, November 21, 2017. He was born on October 4, 1938 in Janesville, WI, the son of Rodney Ivan and Lucille (Kloepping) Arnsmeier. He married Joyce Elliott on February 22, 1958 in Juda, WI.

Lowell was a man of many talents. He farmed locally in the Brodhead/Juda area for many years, was an ironworker for Chicago Bridge and Iron, a welder at Monroe Truck Equipment and a truck driver, coast to coast for a span of 50 years. One of his favorite past times was playing Euchre with anyone willing to play and would often travel to different locations to play in tournaments. Lowell enjoyed being surrounded by his wife, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren and was always handy with a laugh and a smile. His dog Lelo had a special place in his heart. His presence and that special laugh will be missed by many.
