Arnold is lovingly remembered by his wife Elsie, three children, Sharon, Sheldon, and Steven; their spouses and eight grandchildren.
He was born and raised on a farm near Main Centre, SK. Arnold received his high school diploma from Herbert High School, and then went on to Millar Bible College in Pambrun, SK. In 1960, Arnold met his loving wife Elsie and they have celebrated forty-four loving years of marriage. In 1970, they moved to Calgary where Arnold started his own kitchen cabinet business which has remained his passion to this day. In 1999, he joined the Sounds of Grace Quartet where he has touched and will continue to touch many, many lives through his God given gift of music. He was a father, grandfather, brother, uncle, friend and companion who will be deeply missed.
