Arnold accepted Jesus as Saviour at 21. When Arnold and Anne married, he was a cheesemaker. Later he formed a farming and gardening company with his father and brother-in-law. When the church called Arnold as pastor, he trained 3 years at Steinbach (Man.) Bible College. He pastored and led choirs 1955–1989, in Wymark, Sask.; Steinbach; Winnipeg; Abbotsford and Yarrow, B.C., officiating 254 weddings and baptizing 250 people. Arnold enjoyed golfing, fishing, vacations and visiting family. He taught his family “a smile costs so little yet gives so much.” A generous and faithful man, Arnold lived with integrity. His family says his greatest gift was “showing us the way to have eternal life through Jesus.”
