January 18, 1943 to April 22, 2018 - Jim was born January 18, 1943, in McMinnville Oregon.

James Bennett Arvidson

Jim was born January 18,

1943 in McMinnville Oregon and was the second of four boys to Lloyd and Virginia Arvidson. He was raised in Gresham

Oregon and graduated from

Centennial High School in

1961. He was drafted into the

Army and served in Vietnam

in the First Cavalry Division.

After being discharged from

the Army Jim went to work

for Harold Kelly Appliances and later went to work

Bernard Food Industries where he was a territory

salesman for 46 years.

Jim was an extraordinary athlete not only in

high school but later in life as an avid golfer and a

championship dart player. Jim also loved cars and was

a collector of several classic cars.

Jim is survived by his wife Claudia of 37 years,

daughter Audrey Quinn, stepson Paul Hermanson,

brothers Tom of Mill Valley California, Peter (Margie)

of Portland, Joe (Kay) of Salem, granddaughters Kaili

and Jamie and three great grandchildren.

Anyone who met Jim Arvidson soon realized that

he was a kind and loving individual who was always in

a good mood. We will forever miss Jim as a husband, a

dad, a brother and as a friend.

A private memorial will be held at a later date.
