Born into this world on april 8th 1962 as Jörg Arneke, and gone to Forever Chapter on december 27th 2016 as a true warrior, fighter and Viking.
So, on this very special day, we all met in the beautiful winter scenery of the „Ruhewald“ in Thuringia alongside with Arnies´ family and friends, to pay our last respect to him.
Of course, this was not an ordinary funeral for an ordinary man.
To keep himself in tune with nature, Arnie had chosen to get his ashes buried in the wood under a big, proud tree.
In the last 5 years, which he spent in our great nation, there were not many of us who didn´t know him well and feel deep respect towards his truly sympathetic and heart warming character! His heart was so large, the whole world could fit in it!
A couple of hundred brothers and bikers from all over Europe proved to his great popularity.
Even though he´s gone now, he´ll be in our hearts forever! Or to put it in Arnie´s own words: „I´m still there, I just changed the room“
The sun was shining like Valhalla itself opened it´s heavenly gates to let us all know: our beloved brother Arnie has arrived safely!
After the ceremony, a lot of people came to gather in the clubhouse of BMC Bad Königshofen for a memorial party „Arnie-Style“... and of course, we showed our colours one last time in public before the german government forbids it by law.
