Arnold A. Pinney

July 28, 1936January 3, 2021

Arnold A. Pinney, 84, long-time resident of Dublin, NH, passed away on January 3, 2021 in the comfort of home surrounded by his loving family.

He was born on July 28, 1936 in New Boston, NH, son of the late Joseph and Edythe (Collins) Pinney. He was raised in Dublin where he attended area schools.

Following his schooling, Arnold served his country in the United States Army.

On May 24, 1967 Arnold married Madelene Daigneault.

Arnold had been employed as a plumber, heavy equipment operator, construction worker and worked for the State of NH and the town of Dublin for many years. For the last 30 years he was a caretaker for close friends. He was always involved within the community of Dublin which he loved greatly. He had served as the Chief of Police, he was a Selectman, and had been the Supervisor of the Checklist.

Arnold was a member of the American Legion. He enjoyed tending to his garden. More than anything, he cherished time he was able to spend with his family - especially with his grandchildren. He will be fondly remembered for his kind and thoughtful nature.

Arnold will be dearly missed by his wife of over 53 years: Maddi Pinney of Dublin, NH; children: Michele "Mikki" Regan, Shelly Pinney, Todd Pinney and his wife Rosemary, Scott Andrew Pinney, Scott Allen Pinney, Robin Vaughan and Michael Pinney. Sister Sheila Van Blarcom (Jim Gibbons), Sisters in law Helen Pinney, Justine Mark (Terry Mark), Brothers in law Joseph Daigneault (Ruth Daigneault) and Tom Daigneault, many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, and nephews; and special friends: Jay and Bunny Healy of Dublin, NH.

He was predeceased by his siblings Bernard, Clio, and Pauline.

In keeping with Arnold's wishes, there will be no services.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Arnold A. Pinney's name to a charity of one's choice.

Arnold❣️ Primarily, he was a wonderful friend to Jay and me. Next, he was a friend who helped us in so many ways...
Should we water the blueberries?
What is it we do if the alarm goes off?
How do we know when we need to shovel
the snow off the roof?
Do you think that mark on the wall is a leak?
Most important, he knew and accepted that I, Bunny, regularly forgot stuff and/or
changed my mind.
Always a highlight of his trips to Charcoal Road was when we both had time for a visit. Arnold had fascinating tales of days gone by... walking miles to a trailhead on Monadnock, and then climbing it, or being able to see people atop the mountain with his naked eye. There are many more stories, which will stick forever, along with his snicker and the glint in his eye!
Cheers, Jay and Bunny
