I just found out about Arvin’s passing... Arvin was our attorney for ClearChannel Outdoor... He started out as our legal counsel, and than became a personal friend... He was a master in the courtroom we won some remarkable cases... When I left Chattanooga in 2007 I meet with Arvin to thank him for all he did for CCO and also for being a good friend... When I started returning to Chattanooga in late 2020 I often thought about reaching out... He has more than earned his place in heaven... Go speed Arvin...

I want to tell Arvin's family and especially his daughter whom I met once when she was a very young girl working at a store in Brainerd or she in high school or college. That your father whom I have known for over 40 years was a very good man and an excellent lawyer too. He was was both humorist and kind and well liked by all lawyers that I knew . He has been a friend of mine since I was a young lawyer .While he was a municipal Judge in East Ridge he was firm but always fair and had compassion for the people who came before him . The world was better off that Arvin Reingold was born to this earth, for both the goodness and kindness that he left to this world , and even though I have not seen him since he retired or when he used to walk at Eastgate every day. I will always remember what a good man he was .

Mr. Reingold was always helping others in many ways. He and I go back many years and even share the same birthday. He and Mrs. Reingold welcomed me in their home often. They would always have work around the house and the office building for me to do for them. Mr. and Mrs. Reingold were very special to our family. He will truly be missed and I am so thankful that God allowed our paths to cross. My condolences to the family.

Arvin was a friend for over fifty years. He was kind, compassionate and extremely funny. He helped me out a few times with some legal problems and was always available when I was in need. We had been at the same social gatherings a few times and he was always the most popular guy in the room. I'm sure he will be missed by all his countless friends.

Arvin was a great friend and fellow attorney. Any day that I ran into Arvin was a more enjoyable day. He never failed to make me laugh and point out something interesting that I hadn't thought of.

He was a treat to know.
