WALTER ARNOLD Walter Arnold, 92, passed away peacefully on May 30, at home in Las Vegas. He was born March 27, 1927 in Cortez, Colo., one of eight children and had many interesting stories about growing up on a small farm in Colorado. He was truly a sweet country boy and a gentleman and remained so all his life. He was a World War II Army Veteran, working on the railroad in Austria and sending concentration camp victims home in clean clothes and with the proper paperwork. He was a lifetime member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and was a past president. He was a loving, gentle-spirited man who loved his family and always had a smile, and anyone who met him could see that he was one of a kind. They really don't make men like him anymore! He is survived by sons, Doug and Lee, both of Las Vegas; daughters, Paula (Charlie) Simmons of Overton, Bobbie Traughber, of Ridgecrest, Calif., and Donna Pence and Pam Christie, both of Pahrump; 19 grandchildren; 44 great-grandchildren; and 14 great-great-grandchildren. Services and a celebration of his life will be held at Bunker Brothers Chapel on Las Vegas Boulevard and Washington, at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, June 8, with burial immediately following at Bunkers Edenvale. A family gathering will be held at the home of Doug and Vicki Arnold. He was deeply loved and will forever be missed by his family.
