November 30, 1949 – April 6, 2024 

Jimmy “Jim” Dale Arbogast, Sr., passed away on Saturday, April 6, 2024, with his loving daughter and wife by his side. He was preceded in death by his parents, Ray and Olive Arbogast; two sisters, Avanella and Mary; three brothers, Don, Bob, and Sherman; his beloved son, Jimmy Dale Arbogast, Jr.; and a daughter-in-law, Dawn Ikehara. 

 

Jim was born in the mountains of Huttonsville, West Virginia on November 30, 1949.
