Armin grew up on the family farm in the Dallas Township of Wisconsin. He moved with his family to Anoka, MN at the age of 17. Armin graduated from Anoka High School in 1954. He met his lovely wife Joanne (Jo) Miller on a blind date. They were married September 21, 1957. Armin was the co-owner, along with Richard (Dick) Daas, of Coon Rapids Plumbing (founded in 1974) until the fall of 1989. He was a skilled plumber, providing services and advice to family, friends, and neighbors. Armin loved three things: God, his family and playing sports.
