Wendell Hugh Arnold  
It is with heavy hearts that the family announces Wendell"s passing on Sunday November 25th, in Little Current at the age of 88. He is now in a better place!
The son of the late  Roy and Hazel Arnold of Sandfield.
Survived by his brother Don, wife Lois ( predeceased),
his Son Mark Arnold and wife Maureen Arnold,  
Grandchildren Amanda Snyder (husband Bobby) and Lukas Arnold
and great grandchild Sawyer Grey Snyder.
Friend Maryann Pangowish and family,
plus the many  nieces and nephews.  
Wendell was a free spirit, who walked to his own beat.  He prided himself on never having to work for anybody in his life other then himself.  His livelihood choice, was being a livestock dealer (one of the first to be licensed in Ontario) he started this venture at a very young age.  He just loved it.  It was a challenge that never stopped for him,  there were many gains and also many losses; with that, he just worked harder.  Overtime he built a huge customer and land base, that even expanded to many faithful  Mennonite customers in the S.t Jacobs area.  He was quite proud of his business  relationships in St. Jacobs.  The biggest pride was, delievering them with good solid, growthy Manitoulin Island cattle!  He knew his cattle and knew how they would grow.   There were many words to describe to Wendell,  from being a great dancer, to being mischievous, a joker with big blue eyes!  He loved to chat, especially on the phone.  He was great on giving advice to friends and family, on a daily basis!  He had a very strong personality, and of course he was well  known  for being quite stubborn.  
He was his own man, and in his own way he loved us all .
He will be sadly missed
