Philip E. Arnold 1922-2002
My Dear Husband Phil,
Ten years have passed since you died on June 3, 2002. Unfortunately, at that time none of our family members, including myself could find whatever it takes to compose a notice befitting you. We’re still reaching for the high marks you so deserve. My darling, you are missed in every conceivable way. I, as your wife long for your presence, warmth, strength, comfort and loving ways.
Few people outside our family are aware of your many accomplishments: You graduated from the University of Wisconsin with an Engineering Degree and earned military awards in WWII as an officer in the U.S. Army. You earned the respect of many generations by inventing the outdoor gas grill (barbecue), which led to your being the successful founder of the preeminent AEI Corporation. Lastly, Santa Ana Country Club will always remember Philip E. Arnold as the “Most Winning Tournament Golfer” of your time!
