THE BUTCHER, THE BAKER, THE CANDY MAKER
March 18, 1930 - November 25, 2017
A private committal ceremony will be held in Los Gatos for long-time Aptos resident, Arnold Measeles, who passed away peacefully at Dominican Hospital this past weekend. Born in Gurdon, Arkansas, he was 87 years old.
"Arnie" as he was affectionately known, worked as a butcher for many years at Shopper's Corner. His career as a meat cutter spanned over 48 years, where he first worked at Glen Food Center in San Jose and Roy's Market in Felton. Arnie had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed sports. He was a "master" candy maker; winning numerous 1st Place Awards over the years at the Santa Cruz County Fair for his fudge.
Arnold is survived by his wife, Mae, married 62 years; his daughter Carolyn Hedges, his son Paul Measeles (Nancy). He also leaves his grandsons, Brett Hedges and Jonah Measeles.
Arnold served his country in the US Army during the Korean Conflict, inducted in 1951, and stationed in Japan.
A private interment service concluding with military honors, will take place at Los Gatos Memorial Park.
He will be missed by many.
