Arnold was born on December 15, 1934 in Niagara Falls, New York and passed into rest on February 1, 2013 in El Cajon, California at the age of 78 years.
He is deeply missed by his wife Lynn, sons William Lewis Villone and Andrew Lewis Villone, sister Diane Simpao, grandchildren Isabella Sofia Grace, and Leo Emanuel Villone.
Arnold lived in El Cajon, California for the past 44 years. He was proud of his career as a professor of mathematics at San Diego State University for 31 years and has inspired and mentored many students who appreciated and laughed with him through his illustrious career as a teacher.
Arnold always demonstrated a unique and eccentric style while strutting through his life as a teacher, husband and father. This is the passing of a true giant who was loved by all.
Family services are pending.
