Charles Joseph Arbogast

January 21, 1949 — August 10, 2015

Charles Joseph (Joe) Arbogast, 66, passed away unexpectedly August 10, 2015. He was born on January 21, 1949 to Edwin and Kathryn Arbogast of Mount Sterling. Joe was co-owner of The Ohio Willow Wood Company with lifelong involvement in its operation. He was the holder of multiple US patents, many of which were in the prosthetic industry. He also created Foundaway, a company that specialized in unique solutions to everyday problems. He served in the US Army, and was a devout Christian who truly loved the Lord and all that he created. He is survived by his brothers, Eddy (Charlotte) Arbogast and Robert (Pat) Arbogast, and sisters, Judy Gorun and Susan (Bob) Tolle. He will also be deeply missed by his loving friends, Tony and Patti Griffith and their children, who knew him as “Papa Joe”. Also, to cherish fond memories of Joe are his numerous nieces, nephews, and their families. And a heartfelt “thank you” is extended to his special friends, Hunter, Dylan, and Riley. Friends and family may attend graveside services at Pleasant Cemetery, Mt. Sterling, OH on Saturday, August 15, 2015 at 10am. In lieu of flowers, the family suggests donations to the Mt. Sterling Community Center, 164 E. Main St. Mt. Sterling, OH 43143.

“If a man’s intelligence is defined by his accomplishments, he is among the most intelligent of all men. If a man’s regard by others is defined by his friendships, he is among the most highly regarded of all men. If a man’s ability to love is defined by his compassion, he is among the most loving of all men. If a man’s greatness is defined by his generosity, he is among the greatest of all men.”

We will all miss Joe Arbogast.
