On Thursday, October 6th, 2022, Arnold Curtis Summers, devoted husband, father of four, and grandfather of six, passed away at the age of 82. Arnold was married for 58 years to Vonda Summers, the love of his life.
Born on June 14th, 1940, in Grafton, WV, Arnold was one of five brothers. He grew up an active member in the Church of Christ, continuing that devotion throughout his life. He was a member of the Brooksville, Florida Church of Christ and spent over 10 years leading sermons for the congregation of Floral City. He also spent a lot of his time giving back to the community, holding the title of Rotary Club President in Punta Gorda, Florida.
Arnold spent most of his career working for Thomson Reuters, where he started in the print room, and worked his way through the ranks, until he eventually became Publisher. After retiring from the newspaper industry, he owned and operated an automobile dealership in Brooksville, Florida.
Arnold was known for his great sense of humor, his passion for yard work, an impeccably clean car, and the never-ending love for his family.
At Arnold’s request, there will be no funeral or memorial service. The family asks that in lieu of any flowers, donations be sent to the Alzheimer’s Association.
