Arnold, Thomas Lee "Tom" - Dallas  
On the morning of Sunday, Feb. 22, 2015, Dr. Thomas "Tom" Lee Arnold, 77, was called into the arms of our Lord while in the comfort of his home, in the presence of loved ones, and under the constant care of his unwaveringly devoted and selfless wife, Lynda. Tom grew up in Indiana, where he attended Southside High School in Fort Wayne, and later played basketball on scholarship for the Indiana Hoosiers. After graduating from Indiana University School of Medicine, Tom successfully completed an additional two-year internship and four-year residency enabling him to become a surgeon specializing in urology. Tom served as a captain in the Medical Corps in the Air Force at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls. Shortly thereafter, Tom moved to the Dallas-Fort Worth area to start his own practice which he successfully ran for 38 years. He intensely supported Baylor Irving Hospital where he served as chief of surgery, chief of staff, and participated on numerous committees and boards. He often volunteered his expertise in urology by guest lecturing at UT Southwestern Medical School. His wife, Lynda, a registered nurse, worked with him the last 20 years of his practice until his retirement in 2007. Tom faithfully attended New World Methodist Church in Arlington, and he was also part of a close knit Sunday school class called "The Lessons of Life" where his regular seat was always saved by close friends. Tom was a brilliant and gifted surgeon who devoted his life and his career to saving lives and helping his patients. Nearly anytime he went out in public there would be a former patient running up to him and thanking him for what he had done for them or their family. Despite his accomplishments and his status in the medical community, Tom was humble and had little interest in status or notoriety. Tom would be just as likely to befriend a cab driver as he would a fellow surgeon. He could talk and relate to anyone, and everyone loved talking with him. Tom courageously battled alcoholism as one of the many challenges in his life. An important part of his sobriety was the fellowship of "The Gift" which is a gathering of AA members in Las Colinas. This fellowship of men and women greatly enhanced his life. He then went on to help the staff at Baylor Hospital by serving on the Board for Review of Drug and Alcohol Problems. Most importantly, Tom was a loving husband, father and friend who was loved by many. But by far the one who loved and adored him the most was his devoted wife. For years after Tom and Lynda retired from their urology practice, Lynda continued to apply her lifelong trade of nursing on a daily basis. No longer as the nurse jointly running their practice, but as the nurse taking care of her next patient, the surgeon she fell in love with and married 36 years ago. It is due solely to her courageous nurturing that Tom ended his long battle with Alzheimer's and dementia in the comfort of his own home and surrounded by love. He leaves behind countless people who are grateful to him for many things, each different and unique as the person that he was. He will always be deeply missed and never forgotten. Celebration of life: 2 p.m. Saturday at New World United Methodist Church, 2201 North Davis Drive, Arlington, 76012. Memorials: In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to The Alzheimer's Association, Greater Dallas Chapter Office, 4144 N. Central Expressway, Suite 750, Dallas, Texas 75204. Tom's life will continue to benefit others as his body was donated to UT Southwestern Medical School for research and study. Survivors: Tom is survived by his wife, Lynda; his sister, Nancy; his children, Brian, Allyson, Leslie and Thomas; and seven grandchildren.
