Arthur R. Arnold

Cherry Hill - Arthur R. Arnold (74) of Cherry Hill, NJ passed away on July 6, 2021 at Thomas Jefferson Hospital in Washington Township. Art was the cherished husband of Patricia (Blair) Arnold with whom he shared forty-nine wonderful years. He was the loving father of Matthew (Jennifer), Elizabeth (Larry Legg), and David (Cristin), and the beloved grandfather of Seamus, Zoey, and Logan.

Art was born in Boston, Massachusetts to the late Robert and Florence (Wilson) Arnold. He grew up in Needham, Massachusetts and graduated NHS Class of '64. He is remembered by his classmates as being a friendly student and a talented gymnast. Art was a member of the Model U.N. Club. In addition, he was an Eagle Scout and participated in several Boy Scout Jamborees around the country. While at Salem (MA) State University, Art considered his two great accomplishments to be starting a radio station, WSSC, and meeting his future wife, Patty. He served in the Vietnam War as a military policeman, and then made a career in sales. He was the Eastern National Sales Manager for Hunt Manufacturing Company where he was employed for twenty-eight years before starting his own company, Arnold Sales. He retired in 2016.

His hobbies included listening to music, old time radio, and short wave radio, but his real passion was amateur radio. His call sign was N2CPR. He was a long-time member of the South Jersey Radio Association. He served on their board of directors and acted as a net control operator on a weekly basis. He also belonged to the Audubon Amateur Radio Club. Art held an active volunteer role with the Camden County Office of Emergency Management. He was instrumental in facilitating radio communications for Amateur Radio Emergency Services (ARES) and Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Services (RACES). He was a volunteer member of Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) and worked to provide support for Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). For many years Art contributed his radio skills to the Multiple Sclerosis Organization. He ran communications for the MS 150 City to Shore bike ride, and also several walks and mud-runs.

A sports lover, Art especially enjoyed coaching baseball and soccer when his children were younger. He was proud to say that he visited all the major league baseball parks across the country. Art was a trivia buff with an extensive general knowledge. Although he was a 007 James Bond movie fan, he also loved a tear jerker flick on the Hallmark channel. He loved popcorn, whole belly fried clams, cheese steaks, and he made a mean tuna casserole. Art was quite a talker, and he will be remembered by his friends for his numerous jokes and repetitive stories. Art dearly loved his grandchildren, and they will miss Pop Pop reading them stories and doing silly impersonations.

Relatives and friends are invited to his Visitation on Thursday evening, July 29th from 6:00 - 8:00 PM and again on Friday morning, July 30th from 10:00 - 11:00 AM at the HEALEY FUNERAL HOME, 1816 Haddonfield-Berlin Road (Route 561), Cherry Hill, NJ where His Memorial Service will be held Friday beginning at 11:00 AM.
