    I'm so sorry to hear about Arnold, I went to school with him and hung out as a group.
    He was so funny and I enjoyed his company.
    I did visit him about 10 years ago with a friend and was sad to hear about his troubles.
    RIP Arnold🙏

    My condolences to Arnold's family and loved ones. Arnold and I were at school together. I've not seen my classmate in many many years, but I will remember him fondly for his quick wit, big laugh, and his glorious curly hair. We were in drama class and several high school plays together. In one particular play Arnold played the judge in a murder trial ""Night of January 16th" He did his darnedest to keep a straight face when a witness on the stand professed, "It's a lie! You shameless hussy!" To the cast's dismay, Arnold was able to control his giggles and snickers on opening night.
    I'm sorry for your loss.

    I was so sad to hear this news last night. My deepest condolences to Arnold's family.
    I have so many great memories of Arnold when we were young and care free. He became my first boyfriend when I agreed to go to Jesus Christ Superstar with him in grade 6. The whole class went but I was his date. He had Glenn Drescher ask me and then he did cart wheels across the school field when I agreed. We had so much fun together. Hanging out and Laughing, his smile and his genuine big soft heart will always be in my memories. Love always! RIP Arnold!

Cutting thru backyards, Connaught School...and some other places that we maybe should not have been. My sincere condelence to Arnold's family. Thanks for the memories Arnold.
    We will see you on the other side!

    My deepest condolences to Arnold’s family. He was my friend from grade 5 to 7. I can still hear his laugh and see his smile. We were a little group; Gary, Teresa, Audrey, Arnold and myself. I remember us making a turtle one year for our snow project we did an awesome job. Haven’t seen Arnold since grade 7 because I moved away but he will and has been in my heart and thoughts always. RIP my friend 💖

    So sad to hear this news. I have not seen Arnold in many many years, but have many fond memories of his laugh and larger than life persona. Arnold was always confident in who he was. He was always kind, considerate and friendly. My condolences to the family. Rest in peace Arnold.
