Arie had a private, quiet, kind, and generous personality.  He especially enjoyed family gatherings.
His favorite pastimes included chess and both salt and fresh water fishing.   He also enjoyed having tropical fish tanks in his home.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Heykoop We were deeply saddened to learn of Arie’s death and we would like to express our sincere sadness and sympathies to you and your family at this difficult time on behalf of the management at Pallmann Pulverizers Company. Your son was a highly valuable and respected member of our team and the effects of his loss are already being felt here by his fellow employees and management.

During his time here, he helped the company move forward in great strides and his efforts and contributions will never be forgotten.

Arie was a wonrerful friend and he will be greatly missed. I extend my condolences to Aries Family, words can not do justice for the loss of this beautiful, generous and great man. We enjoyed playing chess together and watching football, I remember a trip to the keys where we went out for Mahi-Mahi and Arie caught a huge barracuda. He left a lasting impression on my kids as well. I would like to offer my sincere concolences to Arie's family. I have many pictures of Arie, as well as some video of our fishing trips, if you would like copies, please call me or email me, I will be honored to send them to you. God Bless you all, Charlie and Staci Weber (352) 512-1839
