Robert W. Arney, 66, of Beach City passed away on Friday, February 5, 2021 in the Aultman Compassionate Care Center following a six month battle with cancer.

He was born on May 10, 1954 in Beach City and was a son of the late Richard and Ruth Andreas Arney.

He was tremendously gifted in his ability to fix just about anything, and had a passion for metal and woodworking. Robert lived an exciting and adventurous life; he had a great personality and will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
