Sad news this morning! We lost a big part of our 66 Core Reunion Committee and a dear friend this morning. Seems Arnold had a fall and with the complications of diabetes and arthritis passed away this morning.
Since we first gathered for our 10th reunion , Arnold has been a major partner in helping make our great reunions happen. He will be missed and we send warm wishes and prayers to his widow Sherry.and family!
 Details of a service will be forthcoming. 
Rest in peace dear friend!

Arnold Canales's smile is one of our class's enduring treasures.  When we think of him, maybe the first word that comes to mind is, "Happy."  Arnold always seemed filled with joy.  The last time many of us saw him, at the 50th reunion's poolside party, he was the picture of the proud patriarch--surrounded by family members who knew he was wild about them.  You could tell he made them as happy as he always made us.  Thanks, Arnold.

We are saddened by the loss of Arnold, but so thankful for some special time with him and Sherry preparing for the reunion and during the event.  He is missed.  Sherry we will continue to pray for God's peace for you and the family as you go through Christmas and the coming year.
