Obituary

Arnold Carl Breeden, age 82 of Kodak, formerly of Millville, NJ passed away peacefully, surrounded by family Sunday, May 1, 2016 at Physicians Regional Medical Center, Knoxville, following an extended illness. Arnold was born May 22, 1933, to the late Avril Etta Blizzard Breeden and the late Bertram Breeden in Millville, NJ. He was a graduate of Millville HS, Class of 1950, and faithful member of First Methodist Church, Millville. A veteran of the US Navy and Korean War, Arnold served on the Battleship USS Wisconsin from 1952-1960.
Arnold was a career carpenter, concrete finisher, and general builder, retiring from Dupont, Wilmington, DE in 2001. Also a member of the United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America in southern NJ, he retired from the union after 40 years. Arnold and wife Justina built their dream home together in NJ, then once again at their dream destination near the Smoky Mountains in 2005.
A budding entrepreneur at age 8, little did Justina know that the little neighborhood boy snowcone vendor, pulling his wagon of fresh snow, would 48 years later become her husband. In his early adult years, he was an avid fisherman, and loved boating, fishing, clamming, and crabbing along the Delaware Bay area of South Jersey and its rivers and estuaries. He was later an enthusiastic, tireless builder at work and at play, always on a grand-scale project at home, but always dedicated his time and work for others. The definition of a people-person, Arnold was loved by everyone who knew him, and has provided us all with a lifetime of memories.
Arnold was also preceded in death by first wife Shirley Ann Cheeseman. He leaves to cherish his memories: wife Justina Breeden, daughter Linda Romanick, Children through marriage: Bruce Trout, Sheryl Ferraro & Kevin Brown(SO), Charles Trout & Amanda(SP), Grandchildren through marriage: Cami Lombardo & Vince(SP), Levi Trout, Anthony Ferraro, and Great-Grandchild: Jaden Lombardo.
A celebration of Arnold's life will later be announced and held in the town of his birth.
Stevens Mortuary, Oglewood Avenue at North Broadway is serving the family of Mr. Breeden.
