Arnold, in 1961, began his service to his Country as a member of the United States Army and served in the Berlin, Germany crisis as a mechanic and motor pool.
Upon returning from active duty, Arnold worked for Jim Heike as a farm hand, a mechanic at the Ford Garage but most notably as a farmer on his own family homestead in the Town of Albany. He also enjoyed driving the Amish to where ever they needed to be and was a faithful Parishioner of Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Mondovi and the Knights of Columbus.
Arnold was a man that could fix and repair most anything mechanical. He enjoyed camping, riding snowmobiles, attending auctions, traveling.
