Armand J. Petrini

Armand J. Petrini of Phoenix passed away Friday, March 31, 2006, at age 76. Armand is survived by his beloved wife of 55 years, Donna; his son, David Petrini of Tucson; and his daughter, Laura (husband David) Higginbotham of Phoenix.

After returning from the Korean War, Armand and Donna settled in Waukesha. An avid fisherman and hunter, he ran many fishing Jamborees. Armand retired from Cooper Power Systems with 30 years of service. It wasn’t until his retirement that people discovered who the prankster was that had painted all the deer tracks on the plant floors during the hunting seasons for so many years.

He and Donna retired to Arizona in 1989 and moved into Paradise Shadows mobile home community. Armand served on the social club and volunteered as a bingo caller for the clubhouse. He leaves behind many friends and community members who enjoyed his fun-loving ways and his kind spirit.

We will be celebrating Armand’s life at 1 p.m. Sunday, April 9, at Paradise Shadows’ Clubhouse, 2701 E. Utopia Road, Phoenix, AZ 85050.
