One hell of a man. Loved him like a dad. I'm sure he & Teddy Vogler (former co-worker & my late husband)are raising hell in heaven. He will be greatly missed!

I met Arnold when he was a crew leader at Cypress S/C. He was very knowledgable about line work and he was an asset to the company. I enjoyed working with Arnold as he was a pleasure to be around. He will be missed here on Earth, but he is in Heaven now.

I met Arnold in 1977 as a helper for HL&P. Arnold was the smoothest lineman I have ever seen. He climbed a pole better than a squirrel. He waisted now moves and made the job look easy. He was a kind person who loved passing on the craft to new employees. Many a men owe him a great debt for teaching them the proper way to work on power lines. Rest in peace.

We are very sorry to learn this. We were in Boy Scouts together. We were high school running buddies. We would meet at the City Cafe for late night breakfast after taking dates home.
We’re about to have our 60th graduation and we were so looking forward to seeing and visiting with Arnold. He will be sorely missed.

There are very few people in this world that have your honesty work ethic integrity and spirituality. You were the type of man husband and father that all men strive to be in their lifetime. I am so blessed to have had you love me. I will cherish all of our great times we have had together over the years. I enjoyed listening to your stories about your childhood, life, and your family. I loved how I could get you laughing and chuckling at my jokes. I can still feel the grip of your hands when we all sat around the table and I can still hear your voice saying the prayer at dinner. I always told Bev I would want my last meal to be your fabulous roast and potatoes and we can’t leave out those yummy biscuits. I know how proud you were of me and your horse Stoney when I took him to the horse show and came home with first place. Old Stoney and I gave it all we had to bring you home that blue ribbon and we were bound and determined to do it. The pride and smile you had on your face was priceless and I will never forget it. I already miss you terribly but I can find peace and comfort in knowing you are with the lord I will see you on the other side Love Court
