Lewis & Clark 'visionary' Red Arndt succumbs to pancreatic cancer

Lennis Arndt of Luverne, known to all as Red, died Thursday morning after a battle with pancreatic cancer. He was 72.

Arndt was an original board member of Lewis & Clark when it was incorporated in January 1990. He became vice-chairman in 1994 and then chairman in 2006.

Lewis & Clark Regional Water System Executive Director Troy Larson called Arndt a driving force in his relentless and tenacious support for bringing critically needed drinking water to the tri-state region.

“Although his nickname was Red, he bled Lewis & Clark blue. He was a visionary who understood this is a legacy-type project that will have a profound impact on the region for many generations to come,” Larson said.
