Craig Hammond Arnold was born in Milwaukee on April 29, 1932, the son of William J. and Irene M. (nee Hammond) Arnold. Craig went on to serve his country in the U.S. Army, and later married Martha (nee Cauthen) Arnold on Oct. 29, 1966 in Decatur, Ga.

Craig worked for the Amoco Company for over 30 years before he retired in 1987. He and Martha wintered in Florida after his retirement.

Craig was a member of the Peter Wollner Post #288 in Cedarburg and was also a member of the Elks Club #46 for many years. An avid sportsman and sports fan, Craig enjoyed going to the Cedarburg Mercs games, watching all sports and truly loved golfing. He was especially proud of his hole-in-one from the #6 hole at the Squireís Golf Club in Port Washington. Craig was also fond of the stock market and reading his USA Today on a daily basis, but his true love was his wife Martha.

Craig is survived by his wife Martha Arnold of Cedarburg. He is further survived by other relatives and many special friends.

Craig was preceded in death by his parents and one sister Claire Monahan.
