One of the things I loved about Uncle Arnold is that he always had this calm nature. He was so easy going and easy to talk to. Arnold was a good story teller as well; made me laugh more often than not. I will always remember how he stood with one hand in his pocket and the other holding his pipe telling stories, reminiscing and flashing that big 'ol smile of his. You will be greatly missed!

Although we didn't see Arnold often. I remember when we did see him he was always very nice and treated me like family. I will always remember how he accepted me into the family and how he would love on my babies.
