1955 - 2017 Obituary Condolences
SHERRI DINKEL Sherri Jo Dinkel passed away Saturday morning, October 28, 2017. Sherri was born in Fort Bragg (Fayetteville), North Carolina. She spent her childhood growing up in a loving household in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with her parents, Robert Goodsitt and Barbara Kaiser, and brother, Jeffrey Goodsitt. Sherri's adolescent years were spent on a ranch home in Mequon, Wisconsin, with her mother, stepfather, Michael Kaiser, brother and several pets/animals, including Arabian horses. Sherri was somewhat of a free spirit and old soul who got started in the "real world" at an early age ultimately meeting Kenneth Arnold "Arnie" and marrying him at 19 years old. Shortly after marriage, Sherri gave birth to her first and only child, Joshua Lee Arnold. The young family was "on the road" quite a bit experiencing life to the fullest with Arnie being a professional drummer in multiple bands, most notably Short Stuff. While Josh was being raised by his grandparents in Scottsdale, Arizona, Sherri and Arnie had an amicable divorce. Shortly thereafter, Sherri met and married her second husband, Steven Dinkel. Steve and Sherri had some great times, memories and adventures in Milwaukee prior to moving to Scottsdale, Arizona in 1985 to be closer to Josh and continue raising him where Josh's grandparents had left off. Sherri, Steve and Josh spent the next 10 years or so as a tight-knit family while Steve and Sherri ran a successful limousine company, Five Star Transportation. At one time, Five Star was the largest limousine company (based on number of limousines) in the entire state of Arizona. In addition to the business, Sherri and Steve spent a ton of time with Josh supporting him in his various sports and school activities. In 1999, Sherri moved to Las Vegas to be closer to her family, where she ultimately ended up working for the family business, Goodsitt Commercial Group, a commercial real estate management and leasing firm. Josh visited Sherri and the rest of the family frequently and moved to Las Vegas with his fiancé, Risa Guzman, in 2014. Soon after, Sherri became a grandmother for the first time to two grandsons, Jaxson Logan Arnold and Jaylen Lennox Arnold. Needless to say, Sherri spent the majority of her free time over the past few years loving and caring for her two grandsons while being semi-retired. Sherri will be dearly missed and forever remembered by all of her family and friends as she truly was and is one of a kind. Sherri was preceded in death by her parents, Robert Goodsitt and Barbara Kaiser; stepfather, Michael Kaiser; former husband, Kenneth Arnold; and husband, Steven Dinkel. She is survived by her son, Josh (Risa Guzman) Arnold; sister, Staci (Ken Kim) Kaiser; brother, Jeffrey Goodsitt; stepmother, Dorothy Goodsitt; two grandsons, Jaxson and Jaylen Arnold; and two nephews, Tristan Kaiser and Chase Goodsitt. Memorial service and committal will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday, November 7, at King David Memorial Chapel and Cemetery, 2697 E. Eldorado Lane, Las Vegas. Family requests that memorial donations be sent to .
