Arnold's love of life and people, and learning different cultures, led him to travel the world with his career in the Airlines.
He is my brother in law, my sister's husband.
35 years ago, he came into our lives, with the love of his life, his Farida.
He was a kind, generous gentleman with his amazing travel stories in his cute Dutch accent and twinkling blue eyes.
His love of the skies and oceans was obvious.
Last few years he could not travel much, but relaxed by the ocean.
This Flying Dutchman has finally earned his Angel Wings. Fly high dear brother.
"I've lived a life that's full, I've traveled each and every highway, and much more than this, I did it my way" that's Arnold!

Rest in eternal peace, our dear Arnold.
We love you,

Sherry and Adi, Farzana, Karl and Amy and Ayden and Chris
P.S. Donations in his memory can be made to St. Jude's.

We took an instant liking to Arnold when we first met him only about three years ago. So did our younger kids. We will all miss him.

You could easily tell that Arnold had a zest for life. He was a lifelong lover of the sea, of boating and beaches, and being out in the sun. From his condo in Marco Island, you got a bird’s-eye view of the gulf, the shifting sand bars and small islands nearby, boats -- big and small -- and the dolphins out for their afternoon excursion. No longer able to spend much time in the sun, the view from the balcony kept him in the game.

Arnold loved to live. His body might have been frail but his mind never dimmed. He loved his doctors and they took care of his body. All that might not have been enough but he had a secret weapon in Farida. They were the best of friends across three continents. She was a wonderful companion and, whenever things got bad, she supported, nursed, and comforted him. Of course, Farida will miss him here. But, in Heaven, Arnold will surely miss her.

Dear Farida,
Our hearts are broken as we will miss our next door neighbor! Arnold was one of the kindest souls I have ever known ... always a smile — no matter which battle he was facing! Much love to you, my dear friend. I pray you find peace.

Dear Farida,

I’m very sorry to learn about Arnold.

I’ll always remember the time I spent with him when he was TWA’s GM for India and also later, when he returned to the same position in AMS. I have a lot of fond memories of him from those TWA years. He was a good person.

My heartfelt condolences. May he Rest In Peace.

My so dear unkle,

It is so hard to keep just one part of all the memories I could share with you throughout these decades you spent in Europe, Asia and North America.
I will keep the vision of the flying Dutchman, on the move, sharing stories, showing kindness, pushing all your nephews to their limits (and thank you for that) and always laughing with the family.
Although part of the 4 "de Korver" brothers, you were clearly unique and my father (would he still be among us) would surely confirm how much your absence was always felt.

May your last flight, my dear flying Dutchman, be the most peaceful and comfortable you ever made. You will miss us all very very much

Love

Christophe (with Johan and Tobias)

Dear Arnold,

I have known you for so long, always on the move and coming back to see his family.
I will surely remember you as my charming little brother that I never had. You were so adorable, kind and joyful

May you now rest in peace and continue with your great spirit

Love

Francoise

Dear Arnold,
You have touched the lives of so many with your zest for life and genuine kindness. As we say goodbye to you, we honor your loyalty, generosity and gentle character. But I will especially remember you as my beloved uncle who created some of my fondest childhood memories. Always protective towards your little brother, you carried on and gave me my wings to fly to America. I miss you.
With love, Laura.
