Arlen Dean Sealock

 Arlen was extremely loyal to friends and family and would drop everything to help someone out whenever he was called upon for assistance. He also had a mischievous sense of humor and prided himself on being able to pull a good prank, some of which would take months to plan and execute. These pranks would then become fodder for his many, many, many stories, which he told to anyone and everyone who would listen.     
 
 Born in Hastings, NE on March 8, 1937, Arlen and his family moved to Superior, NE in 1945. After high school, Arlen served with the U.S. Air Force and returned to Nebraska to follow in his father’s footsteps as a truck driver, but his father encouraged him instead to take advantage of engineering opportunities afforded to him from his time in the Air Force. He did so and worked first for Philco, then Denelcor, and finally Raytheon in their missile systems division. During that time, Arlen met and married Barbara Brandt, with whom he had two children who were raised in New Hampshire. After their divorce, Arlen moved to Bristol, TN, where he met Charlotte Jobe, who would become his wife. Upon her passing in 2010, Arlen returned to Hastings, NE, to be among family and friends.
 
Arlen is survived by his son, Darren Sealock; daughter, Robyn Sealock (Frank Steinman); stepdaughter, Stephanie Burrows; stepson, John Bagley; sisters-in-law, Judy Sealock and Shari Sealock; 11 beloved nieces and nephews; several great-nieces and great-nephews; special friend, Ellie Winbolt; “adopted” daughters, Kim Bare and Sandi Moll; the Gerow family; and many friends, both old and new. He was preceded in death by his parents, Elmer and Dorothy Sealock; his sister, Mary Jo Aurand; brother-in-law, Clarence Aurand; his brothers, Jim and Tom Sealock; his wife, Charlotte Sealock; and his stepdaughter, Christina Burrows.
