Arden Flanders
On Monday September 16, 2019, Arden succumbed to Alzheimer’s in the comfort of his own home surrounded by family at the age of 78.

Arden was born on September 27, 1940 in Nebraska to Carroll and Roicy Flanders.  

Mostly growing up in Portland, Oregon, he lived in many places including Washington and Florida before settling in Winnemucca, Nevada in 1989.

 He started his work career in sales but found his true talents owning his own bar and restaurant with wife Linda, Ardie’s Steakhouse and Saloon.  

His favorite pastime was shooting pool and drinking wine with his friends and family.

 When he wasn’t doing that, he enjoyed boating, fishing, crabbing, camping and family card games. Arden enjoyed planning and cooking for big family gatherings and summer BBQ’s.  After he retired, he loved to travel and enjoyed visiting many places around the world.

Arden is survived by his wife Linda of 29 years and a sister, Nila.  Children: Shelby, Jim(Kristin), Rob, Nicky(Whalen) and stepchildren Norm, Rick(Debbie), Letty(Rick) and Deah(Chris).  He has 12 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren.

We are very thankful for Thea and Mercedes at Guiding Light Hospice.

There will be a graveside service on Monday September 30, 2019 at 11am at Winnemucca Cemetery.
