TUCSON, Ariz. — Arnie Kaplan, executive vice president of Truly Nolen, passed away on Aug. 5, in Tucson, Ariz.

Kaplan had been with Truly Nolen for 28 years, starting as a sales inspector. He also worked as a branch manager, and district manager. In 1999, Kaplan and his family relocated to Tucson, where he accepted the position of vice president of Finance, Information Systems, and Human Resources. Under his leadership, the departments made drastic improvements in efficiency and functionality. Kaplan was an active participant in Truly Nolen's management training program and served as a mentor to new branch and district managers.

“Arnie started as a sales inspector and made it to executive vice president mainly on his ability to help people grow,” said Truly Nolen President Scott Nolen. “He was a very respected person in the company who a lot of people owe their personal and professional development to.”

A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., Kaplan grew up in New York and graduated from State University of New York with a major in history and a minor in religion. He had previously worked as a taxi driver and owned a business selling medical prosthesis. He is survived by his wife, MaryJo and children, Zach, Azelia and Mikiela.
