Arnold worked for many years with Kent Homes, delivering and setting up homes. He was active in the community, lending a helping hand to anyone, and volunteered with Great Village and District Volunteer Fire Brigade. He enjoyed working at his Christmas tree lot in Peek-A-Boo, pruning trees and getting them ready to be sold. He was his children’s number one fan in whatever sport they were playing in childhood or as adults and he loved his grandchildren dearly. He also liked to sing and play guitar and enjoyed entertaining anyone who would listen.
