Arlo Arlen Bueber  was born January 6, 1939 at home on the farm in Kaylor, SD, the son of Helmuth and Leontina (Welk) Bueber.  He attended country school until eighth grade and then went to high school at Delmont. Following his graduation in 1958, he began farming with his family. On April 18, 1963, Arlo was drafted into the Army. He completed his basic training at Ft. Leonardwood Missouri and was stationed at Ft. Hood, Texas. Since he was fluent in speaking German, he was sent to Germany for two weeks during the Vietnam war as an interpreter.  When his time was finished in the military, Arlo returned to Delmont to continue farming.
On March 18, 1972, Arlo married Sharon Meyer at Zion Lutheran Church in Delmont.  Together they farmed for many years until selling the farm in 1988 and moving to Tripp.  There they purchased the Lunch Box cafe and Arlo worked at the Tripp Creamery and cheese plant. In 1995, Arlo moved to Miller where he worked for a farmer. Arlo was always a farmer at heart and said his favorite thing was the smell of the soil in springtime.  He was also the custodian at the Miller school. On October 19, 2002, Arlo married Lori (Hinckley) Batterman at Zion Lutheran Church in Delmont.  They made their home in Delmont.
Arlo was an active member of Zion Lutheran Church, where he served as an elder for many years and was a part of the men's choir.  He also served as president for the dartball league, too many years to count. He was an active member of the Delmont American Legion for nearly 50 years and a member of the Twin Iron Association.
Arlo enjoyed life and all the sports it had to offer: basketball, softball, baseball, volleyball, football, horse racing, and most recently, golf.  He had a favorite team for most sports, but none as great as the Miami Dolphins, Minnesota Twins, and the Los Angeles Dodgers all of whom had a special place in his heart.  He played baseball himself until he was in his forties.  Arlo and Lori enjoyed bowling weekly on a league, dancing, and watching movies.  Up until his accident, Arlo was still working full time at the Luxury 5 Cinema in Mitchell as a custodian and he loved sharing movie theater popcorn with friends and family.
Arlo died Tuesday, February 3, 2015 at Ambassador Healthcare in Lincoln, Nebraska after battling injuries and paralysis he sustained due to a fall August 21, 2014.
He is survived by his wife Lori Bueber of Delmont; two daughters, Amey (Tom) Schatz of Tripp and Tina Bueber of Sioux Falls; two grand-daughters, Kennedy Schatz and Gracey Schatz of Tripp; one sister Sharon (Curtis) Tollin of Eldon, Missouri; two brothers, Leonard (Gigi) Bueber of Dallas, TX and Kenneth (Carol) Bueber of Burns, WY; three stepchildren, Darci Gianfrancesco of Santa Ana, CA, Dale Batterman of FonduLac, WI, and Doug Batterman of FonduLac, WI.
Arlo was preceded in death by his parents, brother Randy, infant son Randall, former wife Sharon Bueber, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.

"...the spirits of all men...are taken home to that God who gave them life. ...those who are righteous are received into a state of happiness, which is called paradise, a state of rest, a state of peace, where they shall rest from all their troubles and from all care, and sorrow." ..... The Book of Mormon, Alma Chapter 40, Verses 11 - 12. Leonard: Please have faith that it will be a joyful time when you and your brother, as well as all your family members, will be united once again.

I am sorry for your loss please accept my sincere condolences. I hope you will find your strength and comfort in Jesus promises of the earthly resurrection(:Acts 24:15) and the renewed Paradise earth, where death will be no more and no family will have to mourn the death of a loved ever again. Revelation 21:3,4; Luke 23:43. May GOD(Psalms 83:18) grant you peace and comfort now during this grievous time.-Matthew 5:4.

Arlo was a Board member at Delmont School when I worked there. He was very nice to us when we moved there and even invited us out their farm for supper one Saturday evening. They had invited out Delmont people so we could get to know our new found friend at Delmont. We have always had very fond memeries of our time at Delmont and Arlo had a lot to do with that. May God grant Grace and Peace and Comfort as only He can.

We are thinking of you at this sad time and keeping you in our prayers. Your family has had many highs and lows in the past few months, but always remember God was watching over Arlo. We never know what he has in store for us, so we need to think of each day as a gift and live it to the fullest. May your memories of Arlo comfort you.
