Arnold was always unapologetically himself. If you liked him, good. If you didn't, he was fine with that too. However, he was still liked and admired by most people. As a young boy, he kept his Momma on her toes. She never knew what he was going to get into next. From a young age, he enjoyed fixing things. If it was broke, he could fix it. He loved working on muscle cars. He could rebuild a car in his sleep, which was good because he was pretty rough on his cars. He lived in Kansas in his twenties where he did a lot of hot rodding and street racing.

In the late '70s, he moved back to Foster, Oklahoma and met the love of his life, Brenda Morris. They were married May 18, 1978, in Wichita Falls, Texas. They started their life in Foster, Oklahoma and had two daughters, Christi and Misty. He worked as a driller on drilling rigs for many years. His expectations were extremely high for his crew, but he would work right alongside them.

He was always a jokester. He loved teasing, especially his nieces and nephews, who affectionately called him "Uncle DeDe". The grin and sparkle in his eyes lit up the room. This is just a small part of what made him a great Daddy. He was always teaching his girls how to do things. He was there for them when it didn't quite work out. If there was a problem, he had a solution. He loved his daughters very much. In the 90's, he started running a propane plant near his home in Foster. He was often called to other plants to show them how to do things. He worked there until his retirement.

His greatest enjoyment in life was his grandkids. In his eyes, they could do no wrong. When they were young, he would take them in the pasture to teach them to drive. He loved joking with Oliver, Clayton, and Elizabeth. He was always teaching them things. Jahcee was his only grandkid for nine years, and she was his whole world. They went everywhere together. He loved to play "little animals" with her. Every toy cow and horse had a name.

To make a long story short ... He will be loved and missed.

From the outside, he seemed so tough, but his tender heart was so apparent when he would be caring for his Momma, brushing her hair and talking to her so gently.

As he would say, "to make a long story short . . .", he was a great man, an even better Daddy, and the best Poppa.
