John Robert Arnold, 70, went to be with his Savior on January 5, 2014. John was married to the love of his life, Lana for 36 years before she went to be with the Lord in 2003. John will be dearly missed by two loving daughters Amy Simpson and Debi Foley, their husbands James Simpson and Jeff Foley, as well as his 3 beloved grandchildren Connor and Allyson Simpson, and Elyana Foley. He will also be missed by his mother Marge Arnold and brother Gary Arnold. John was full of life, dedication, generosity and made an impact on all who knew him. Whether it was through working with NASA, OAO, Lockheed Martin (where he worked for nearly 40 years) or through his involvement with church, Habitat for Humanity and various other ministries both at Gloria Dei in Nassau Bay or First United Methodist Frisco, John always left a lasting impression on those he met along the way. A memorial service to celebrate the life of John Arnold will be held at 2pm, Friday, January 10th at First Frisco United Methodist Church with a reception following. In lieu of flowers, donations to honor his memory would greatly appreciated. John was active in several charities, but the two below were very special to him.
