Arne was a strong and steadfast family man. He had an affinity for reading and old movies and would never turn down a great cup of coffee! His math abilities were second to none and the sweet aroma of his pipe permeating through the house will be sorely missed. Our dearest husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend will forever be in our hearts and remembered with the greatest of love.

Clausen and his wife Barbara of Woburn, Eric Clausen and his wife Francine of Gloucester, Karen Piatkowski and her late husband Paul of Londonderry, NH, and Lisa L. Clausen of Woburn.
