Arnold, James R.

James R. Arnold, 71, of Glastonbury, passed away peacefully on March 10, 2019. Born on December 29, 1947 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he graduated from North Allegheny High School and Pittsburgh Institute of Aeronautics.
He moved to Connecticut in 1967 for a job at Pratt and Whitney and held jobs at various manufacturing companies as a buyer. Prior to his retirement, he started his own business, Arnold Enterprise.
He was a die-hard Steelers fan and spent many weekends with fellow fans at A D’s in Windsor. He was an avid golfer and enjoyed traveling to Aruba and Destin. When younger, he would organize neighborhood baseball games while his young daughters cheered from the side-lines. He liked to work on engines of any kind and was able to fix anything. He had an extensive workshop which allowed him to complete home and wood-working projects. He had a great sense of humor and loved watching comedy shows and movies and quoting memorable lines. In his later years, he enjoyed going out to eat with his granddaughters and watching Judge Judy every afternoon.
He was predeceased by his father, Ralph F. Arnold and long- time companion “Chizzie” Geraci. He is survived by his mother, Margaret J. Arnold and sisters, Peggy-Lou Sheedy and Diane Jacobson, all of Bonita Springs, Florida.
He is also survived by his two daughter, Pamela Mastrogiovanni of Farmington and Diana Hancin and husband Dennis of Marlborough; and four granddaughters, Lillian and Anna Mastrogiovanni and Julia and Katherine Hancin.
Burial will be private at the convenience of the family.

    I am so sorry for your family’s loss. We are all affected by death, no matter what our age is. The Bible tells us that Jehovah God sees our pain and suffering. And soon he will put an end to death for good. He also promises a resurrection of our loved ones. (John 5:28,29). We all look forward to being reunited with our loved ones. I hope this brings you some comfort during this time of grief.
