Bob was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and, after an honorable discharge, graduated from the Agricultural Technical Institute in Wooster, OH with a degree in Horticulture. A longtime employee of Berns' Garden Center, he was known fondly to all as �Big Bob�. Preceded in death by mother, Ruth Arnold, father, Richard Arnold and brother, John Arnold.
