Ben accepted Christ at an early age.  He was educated in the public school systems in Elberton, Georgia and Cleveland, Ohio where he graduated from Central High School.  He enlisted in the United States Army where he served in the Korean War.

Ben enjoyed life to the fullest. His favorite past times were traveling, going to the casino, going out to eat, and baseball.

To know Ben was to LOVE Ben. He was caring and always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need.

He leaves to cherish his memory his loving sister Bertell Dickson-Lewis, a host of nieces and nephews; friends and family.

The family of the late Benjamin Arnold would like to express their sincere appreciation and gratitude for the many kind expressions of sympathy extended to them during their bereavement.
