He was born on July 4, 1940 in Ballard, Utah.
Mr. Arnold grew up in Utah and graduated from Spanish Fork High School and got his BA from Weber State College in Manufacturing Engineering. His career in Engineering took him to live in several different states and work for various companies. Mr. Arnold was vice president of manufacturing at Chief Industries before he left and started his own business. He was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many positions, including Branch President, High Counselor and worked in the Columbus, Ohio temple for over 5 years.
