Arnold was born in Kansas City, MO on October 27, 1931 and was adopted as a young boy by Paul and Jean Long Rasmussen.  Arnold served our country in the US Army in the Korean War as a military police officer from 1952 to 1954.  After his service in Korea, he graduated from Wichita State University and later married and moved to Overland Park, taking a new job in financial services and mortgage banking at Jackson County State Bank. He and his wife, Pat, raised two children, Sallie and David. Arnold later married Betty Porter Cresswell and shared 20 years with her until her death in 2018, enjoying time in their home in Chicago and later moved back to Overland Park.  They spent many fun times together with friends and traveling across the country to the Grand Canyon, Pennsylvania, and Florida.
