Walter Arnold

Phoenix - Walter Arnold, 79, passed away in Phoenix on August 23, 2018. He was born on March 18, 1939 in Phoenix, to Maurice and Maurine Arnold, the third of eight children. He attended Roosevelt Grade School, Phoenix Christian HS, where he made life long friendships. Pursuing a degree in business, he attended Point Loma, Phoenix College and ASU. Walter worked in the family business, Arnold Pickle Company, founded in 1909 by his grandfather W. P. Arnold. Because of his love for God, his goal was to share Jesus with at least one person each day. His gift of hospitality was given regularly with an unending supply of ice cream and chocolate.

Walter is safe at home with Jesus, after a long hard fight with Alzheimers. He is survived by his wife, Nancy of 58 years, two sons Tim (Lorie) and Chuck (Shari), 6 grandchildren, Chade, Kenny, Amanda, Kaylynn, Ryan and Chantelle, 10 great grandchildren, 3 sisters Vyvyan, Marie and Helen, 1 brother Maxwell. Proceeded in death by his parents, brothers Willie and Jimmy and sister Georgie.

My heartfelt thanks for the love and care, given to Walter by Kelly's Home Care and Hospice of the Valley. A celebration of Walter's life will be September 21st, 10 am at North Phoenix Baptist Chapel.
