I remember Romain fondly over these past years as a patient and humorous teacher who help to grow in me, the seed of interest in what has become a passion, this sport of petanque.
Mr. Arend became a barber at the young age of 17 while in France. After marrying in 1942 he moved to the United States and continued as a barber in Mount Clemens for over 30 years at Bill Bade’s Barbershop. He will be remembered as an outdoorsman who enjoyed fishing, hunting, gardening, and playing petanque (a French version of bocce ball).
Visitation will be held on Thursday, August 7, 2008 from 2:00p.m. until 8:00p.m. in the Harold W. Vick Funeral Home, 140 South Main Street, Mount Clemens. Share memories with the family at http://www.vickfuneralhome.com/
