My sincere condolences to the Arnold family. Bill was a thoughtful mentor and friend to me on the Film Council and previously when he served the Hunt Administration as the first champion and Director of the Film Office. He is missed.

I enjoyed working and traveling with Bill on many occasions when we both were in the Travel & Tourism Department. He was a great guy.

So sorry to hear that Bill has passed away. Wanda contacted me to let me know. Years and miles may separate us (I live outside Dallas), but my thoughts are very much with you and Stephen during this difficult period.
I was so saddened to learn of the death of Billy. I graduated from GHS in 1955. If I remember correctly, Billy was in my brother, Frank's, class. I have great memories of Billy. Not only was he a great Sportswriter, he was a great artist, as well. How proud I have been to follow his life with the Department of Tourism and the film industry in NC. Please know of our sympathy to you and your family.
Our condolences to the Arnold family from the New London, CT Film Commission. Peg Curtin Chair
