He had a lifelong love of old time music. To socialize, Ardeen always enjoyed visiting with friends and neighbors and attending dances at the Gibbon, New Ulm, and Mankato ballrooms. Ardeen always loved a good deal, and rarely could pass up a good auction, garage sale, or thrift store. He was a member of Immanuel Lutheran Church in Gibbon. Ardeen will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Blessed be his memory.

Ardeen is survived by distant relatives and many good friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Ethel Buboltz.
