John Arnold, Oklahoma, Obituary: Unbelievable Musical Bond


Death Notice – Yesterday, I bid farewell to a dear friend, John Arnold, whose influence on me as both a musician and a confidant is immeasurable. Our paths converged in the late 80s during my time at OU’s Music School, where his violin solos in Holmberg Hall left an indelible mark on my soul.

I vividly recall that afternoon, captivated by the passion and beauty emanating from John’s music. An impromptu conversation kindled an instant bond that would endure through the years. John was more than a friend; he was an ace in my life, a source of inspiration, and a companion during my darkest moments.

Through the ebb and flow of life, John’s unwavering presence remained a constant. In times of need, he intuitively reached out, offering solace and understanding. His musical prowess was surpassed only by the depth of his friendship.

As we mourn the loss of John Arnold, I am reminded of the countless lives he touched with his artistry and kindness. His legacy will endure through the memories we shared and the melodies that linger. Farewell, my friend. Your spirit will be greatly missed, and your music will echo in our hearts forever.
