Obituary of Arne Gunnar Svendsen

Arne Gunnar Svendsen, born October 24, 1934 in Moss, Norway, passed away on May 10, 2021, at Slidell Memorial Hospital in Slidell, Louisiana. He was 86 years old. 

Arne’s childhood started in Norway, eventually moving to Sweden when he was a teenager. His ambitions to educate and learn brought him to the engineering field, landing his first job on a ship. The doors opened for opportunities to travel to many states and countries in the world!!!  Arne loved the ocean waters, the sea was his home. He enjoyed immersing himself in cultures and education and Arne continued to stay current on worldly affairs until he passed. Surviving hurricane Katrina, his path landed him at his final home at St. Theresa’s Villas in Slidell, Louisiana.

Arne leaves behind his sister, Gerd Synoeve Lunde of Moss, Norway;four children from one marriage and three from another; eleven grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.  

Arne’s cremated remains are home with loved ones. He rests in peace!
