William H. “Bill” Arnold, 91, of Centre Hall, passed away on Thursday, February 8, 2018 at the Holy Spirit Hospital in Camp Hill, PA. Born on December 13, 1926, in Lewistown, he was the son of the late Lee E. Arnold and Cora E. Shoop Arnold. On January 27, 1951, he married Barbara H. Loman. Barbara passed away on December 7, 2009.
