Arvid was born December 22, 1947 in Milwaukee, the son of Arvid and Rosemary (Bartonich) Brathovde. After his schooling Arvid worked at Continental Canning in Milwaukee for 20 years. He moved with his family to Portage County in the mid 70's, and he settled in Stevens Point.

He enjoyed watching TV shows: Alvin and the Chipmunks, Peter Rabbit, and Bugs Bunny were his favorites. He also liked working with train sets, and listening to music.
He was preceded in death by his parents, two sisters, and one brother. He is survived by his good friends Jeff & Stephanie Cooper and family.
