Arnold Dale Norman

Arnold was born on January 29, 1933 in Chestnut, Louisiana to Garlan Dallas Norman and Edith Godwin Norman.  After graduation from Readhimer High School in 1950, he attended Northwestern State College for one year before enlisting in the U. S. Air Force in October, 1951 during the Korean Conflict.  Upon release from active duty in  October, 1955, he returned to Northwestern and graduated in May, 1958 with a degree in Business.  He remained a member of the Air Force Reserve until finally retiring in 1993.

After graduation from college, Arnold was employed by Arkansas Louisiana Gas Company (Arkla) in Shreveport and served in various capacities until retiring in 1992 as Corporate Secretary.  He was first employed by Arkla in the Gas Accounting Department, where he met and fell in love with Charlotte Bethany.  They were married on August 8, 1959.

Arnold was a member of Springs of Grace Baptist Church where he served in various capacities for over 40 years.  He loved reading and studying God’s Word, and had memorized hundreds of verses.  He was a kind and humble man affectionately known as “Paw Paw.”  He was a devoted husband, father, and son and he found great joy in serving  others.
