Upon graduating from high school, Arlyn entered and completed the apprentice program at General Electric where he learned to design parts for GE products, and worked there for seventeen years.

Arlyn always had a project, and was excited by designing and building new things for himself, family, and friends. He was always a fan of a good practical joke. Arlyn cherished spending time with his friends, family, and loving wife.
