At Shiloh Baptist Church, Arnold served as a deacon, church choir member and volunteered on various committees during his longtime membership. He loved the North Carolina Mountains and, for many years, owned vacation homes in Beech Mountain and Blowing Rock. Arnold will be remembered as a kind and caring husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and friend.
