Arnold Kreikemeier was born February 18, 1931 on the farm west of West Point to Adolph Sr. and Margaret (Batenhorst) Kreikemeier. He attended St. Boniface Catholic School at Monterey through the 8th grade. He was then engaged in farming on the family farm. On February 5, 1953, Arnold married Marilyn Herman at St. Mary’s Catholic Church. The couple lived west of West Point where his love of farming and raising feeder pigs was Arnold’s passion. The couple moved to West Point in the fall of 1999.

Arnold was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church and Knights of Columbus.  The Cuming County Fair received much of his support and volunteerism throughout the years.  Many evenings were spent square-dancing with Marilyn with the Bustles and Beaus. He loved playing cards and spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.  He still enjoyed drives in the country to keep tabs on the crops.
