Arnold was a gentle soul with a kind heart and a dry sense of humor. He loved the Lord, his family and friends, a good meal, reading, playing bridge, and watching Mississippi State play football and basketball. He and Janie ran The Wooden Cupboard together for many years, with Arnold building items and Janie finishing and painting them. Arnold retired from IC Corporation in 2008.
