Andrew (Andy) Kevin Arndt was born January 13, 1962, in Janesville, Wisconsin to Bonnie (Barthel) and Donald Arndt. He also lived in Madison and Phelps, Wisconsin before he and his father moved to Honey Creek, Iowa. He started his freshman year and then graduated from Missouri Valley High School, Missouri Valley, Iowa in 1980. Andy married Mary (Kuhlman) Bolton on July 27, 1995, in Las Vegas, Nevada. In December of 1998 Andy graduated from the Iowa Law Enforcement Academy (Class of 166). He honorably served the Woodbine and surrounding communities as the Chief of Police, with a deep-seeded passion for investigation. He also enjoyed serving the law enforcement community as a fire arms instructor. Prior to his law enforcement career, Andy worked at U-Haul, Martin Luther Homes, was a self-employed entrepreneur through Arndt Interiors Carpet Cleaning and property management. He started the Loess Hills Archery Club with his wife Mary and Jeremy Dunn. He was also a skilled gun smith; a craft he took great joy and pride in sharing with others.

Andy loved hunting and fishing, especially his bear and wolf hunting trip to Canada. He also loved spending time with family, friends and the love of his life, Mary. Andy was known for living his life by the Golden Rule, and many Andy-isms such as 'The Black-Hole Theory' and 'You're either part of the problem or part of the solution.'
