Arnie dancing with angels

Arnie Davis, the 'two steppin' cowboy' has passed away.

Davis, a fixture at Kelowna's OK Corral the past 20 years, died Tuesday at Kelowna Hospice House.

He was the subject of a 12-minute documentary, "Arnie: A Local Legend," which was released last September.

"I have Thursday night and Saturday night to look forward to - go dancing. If it wasn't for the Corral I wouldn't have anything to do. The Corral's been good to me and I think I've been good for them," Davis said in the documentary.

The OK Corral posted the news on its Facebook page Wednesday.

The reaction was overwhelming and heartfelt.

Alyssa Watt Thank you for making all us ladies look spectacular on the dance floor. You were so generous Arnie to make us feel included and beautiful. I know there is a line up in heaven waiting to dance with you just like you had here on earth. Will miss you.

Kin H. Woo The dance hasn't stop. It's just been moved to a bigger dance floor up above us all. Dance away kind Sir!

Jessica Davidson Arnie was an amazing dancer who brought many ladies to the floor! But what I will remember him the most for was watching him work with horses! This man's gentle spirit was amazing and he will be greatly missed not only by us but by those animals he loved so dearly!
