Ronnie Clyde Arnold Jr., 46

Ronnie Clyde Arnold Jr., 46, passed away at his home in Hendersonville on December 28, 2015. To most who knew him, he was light-hearted, goofy, kind and never took life too seriously. He lived his life the way he would have wanted to be remembered by those he loved - wild, free, with the soul of a gypsy and the heart of a hippie.

Though he lived in the area most of his life, Ronnie was a wanderer at heart, loved to travel and greatly enjoyed time spent in California and Amsterdam, among others. He also had a love for antiques and found joy in wandering the flea markets in search of collectibles on the weekends.

He is survived by his father, Ronnie Arnold Sr., a daughter, Ashley Sheppard and husband Scott, a brother, Ray Arnold and his wife Tatia, a sister Denise Simms and her husband, John, and their respective families. He also leaves behind his loving partner Bobby Sutter and many dear friends, all of whom will greatly miss and never forget him.

Services to be provided at 11 a.m. Thursday at the Chapel In The Pines of Jackson Funeral Service.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that all donations be given to his daughter via the Ronnie C. Arnold Jr., Memorial Fund.

"Those we love don't go away, they walk beside us every day - unseen, unheard, but always near - still loved, still missed and very dear."
