Arland married Marjorie Croy on August 25, 1951. They celebrated their 71st anniversary this year.

Arland started working for Douglas Manufacturing in 1952 as a night janitor. He retired in as a superintendent in 1989 after 37 years of service. He enjoyed working with people and was very good at listening to them and sorting out problems. He was a very loyal Michigan fan, and enjoyed fishing, traveling, and especially playing cards with his poker club.
