He graduated from Sidney High School and began a career in radio broadcasting, which included a variety of ball games throughout Eastern Montana. He was known as "The voice of the Eagles".

In younger years he would create scenes to act out using blankets on clotheslines for curtains, chairs and saw horses for his audiences of neighborhood children, and a dog with a Christmas wreath around his neck representing a lion.

Arch enjoyed teaching school children the fun in creating and acting in a variety of plays, which were held in schools and parks across North Dakota and Montana. He was very involved in the Sidney community and well known for his portrayal of political figures including Theodore Roosevelt, Sgt. John Ordway, buffalo hunter Vic Smith, and Captain Grant Marsh. He performed coast-to-coast in more than 2,400 shows. Arch was also a former member at the MonDak Heritage Center and was always interested in events at the museum.
