David Allen Arnold, age 79 of Lowell, passed away peacefully on January 25, 2020 in Kentwood, MI surrounded by loving family. David was born in Flint, MI on October 30, 1940 and graduated from Holy Redeemer High School in 1958. He enlisted in the United States Army out of high school, serving in the artillery until his discharge in 1964 as an E-5 Specialist. David then spent his career of 30 years at General Motors, retiring to build a house in Colorado. He was an avid outdoorsman; an affable man with a great sense of humor, he loved hunting and the time he spent in Colorado. David was a handy “jack of all trades”; he loved helping friends and family and couldn’t sit still for longer than a cup of coffee. He was preceded in death by his parents, Howard and Gertrude Arnold; sisters, Diane Arnold, Lynn Gearhart, Robin (John) Arnold-Williams; and brother, James (Marion) Arnold. David is survived and will be remembered dearly by his wife of 56 years, Barbara (Prill) Arnold; children, Michael Arnold, Brian (Patricia) Arnold, Pamela (Joseph) Thompson; brother, Jerry (Tina) Arnold; sister, Sally (Dennis) Worden; 10 grandchildren; 5 great-grandchildren; several nieces and nephews; and his 3 best friends, his grand-dogs, Chop, Zoe and Murphy that were spoiled rotten by him with donuts, crackers and cheese and anything else that was on the table honestly. David was loved, and will be dearly missed by family and friends. Committal services with Military Honors will be held at a later date at the Great Lakes National Cemetery in Holly, MI followed by a celebration of life in Lowell, MI. Memorial contributions may be made to Spectrum Hospice, 750 Fuller Ave NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49503.
