Arnold died peacefully at home surrounded by family and friends after a short and courageous battle with a serious illness. He was a loving husband, father, son, brother, uncle, friend and colleague.
Arnold was a dedicated Waldorf teacher who also worked tirelessly at achieving that Waldorf schools stand as equal partner within the independent school movement. He worked with the Federation for Independent Schools Association (FISA) for several years and was part of inspection teams of independent schools throughout British Columbia. Most recently, he was Director of Accreditation for the Association of Waldorf Schools of North America (AWSNA).
It was his wish that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to one of the following charities:
The Christian Community of Vancouver

Furthermore, Arnold's family would like to acknowledge and thank the Palliative Care team and the nurses and doctors in Pemberton and Squamish health centers for their dedication and loving care during these last months.
