William "Woody" Arnold passed away on Monday, February 18th, 2013, in his home in Magalia, Ca. Born in NY, Bill proudly served in the U.S. Navy
for 18 years and was a talented graphic artist for Lockheed, but his real love was police work as a reserve Sheriff in Butte County. Bill raised a blended family with his loving wife of 45 years, Bejae. He is survived by her as well as his five children: Allen, Linda, Carol, David and Becky, his six grandchildren: Jennifer, Janeen, Erica, Nick, Kayla and Haley, and three great grandchildren: Mekenna, Grayson and Sydney. Bill loved the woods of Paradise and chose the town in 1980 to build a home and retire. Born on Flag Day in 1929, he died on President's Day at the age of 83; he was a patriot until the end. No services will be held, per his request, but Bill's infectious smile and laughter will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
