Obituary of Arnold Lee Berkompas
Berkompas, Arnold L. “Arnie”
Mr. Berkompas passed away on Sunday, January 8, 2023. He was born January 30, 1933 in Marion Michigan to the late Melvin and Dorothy (Stone) Berkompas. He was a 1951 graduate of Marion High School. He married the former Patricia Andrews on July 12, 1958 in Holt Michigan, and they shared over 64 years of marriage. He had been a member of the Byron FFA Alumni, the Lion’s Club, and the Byron School Board. In addition, he had worked as a herdsman in the MSU Beef Department prior to moving to Byron where he farmed for his lifetime. Although farming, driving tractors, and dairy cattle were his life, his greatest love was the time spent with his family, creating memories to last their lifetime. His kindness, smile, laugh, and generous heart will be remembered by all those whose lives he touched.
He is survived by his wife, Pat; and children, Kathy Berkompas of Lansing and Dean Berkompas and fiancée, Linda Nagel of Byron; loyal special friends, Casey and Chance; brothers and sisters in law, Richard (Marcia) Andrews, John (Sheila) Andrews, Marjorie Peterson, and Barbara Jean Powers; many nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
