  2. Arnold Family,
    So very sorry hearing about your fathers passing.
    A wonderful man who I know loved his family. Not sure if he ever missed one of your games.
    Seem like yesterday I would see him during the baseball season watching all of you play.
    Later on I would see him and talk with him when he was watching Andy’s daughters play soccer.
    Be at peace knowing his work is finished and he is in heaven with God looking down, smiling on all of you.

  6. Mr. Arnold was my neighbor and I am thankful for that. He grew the best blueberries and corn and would always bring us over lots of them! I loved his spunk and I was always so amazed at all that he did outside. I will miss seeing him out there and our talks to just say hello! God Bless and prayers to Mrs. Arnold and his family.

  7. Bud was my longest and dearest friend. As children, if he wasn’t at my house tossing a baseball we were at his house passing a football. Bud was multi-talented participating in athletics and music. He so enjoyed playing his sax in the LHS bands and the famous Le Hi Seven. He was the reason I went to PSU with him. I will miss him terribly. My prayers are with Connie, Amy, Andy, Todd and their families.

  8. I’m so sorry to hear of his passing. I remember him fondly from the days when he would work with Todd and Andy on the investment properties. He was a warm, funny and genuinely kind man, who loved his family deeply.

  10. We are so sorry to hear about his passing. We only met him twice, but enjoy Todd, Debbie, Madison and Meghan.
    May his soul, and the souls of all the faitful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

  11. I enjoyed having Buddy in our Bible class on Thursday nights. He would stop on his way out the door and share with me
    anything he had heard or read about the scriptures, especially the Last Days. My favorite memories was when He would bring me a big bag of the sweetest blueberries and just lay them on the table in front of me. No spray or poison on these berries he would say. Now His faith has become sight and though we will miss him he will not miss us, for heaven will keep him busy till we see him again. My prayers are with those left behind. You beat me Buddy! See you soon!
