B. Duane Arnold


On December 2, 2023, Berchard Duane Arnold entered into the presence of God to behold and be held by his Savior. This was his burning passion for his final leg of this life’s journey.

He was greeted by those who had gone before him: his parents, Berchard and Dorothy (Cunningham) Arnold; his beloved wife, Kay (Jorgensen) Arnold; his son, Kevin Duane Arnold; sister, Yvonne Litz, and son-in-law, Rex Windhorst.

He is survived by his daughter, Kirsten Windhorst; grandchildren, Stacey and Stephen Windhorst; his brother, Keith (Beverly) Arnold; sister, Judy Allen, and daughter-in-law, Lillian Arnold.

Numerous things could be written of Duane’s accomplishments, and of all the lives he touched, but he would prefer to tell of all that Christ has done for him. It would be appreciated for all donations to be made to either Rio Grande Bible Institute, located at 4300 S. US Highway 281, Edinburg, TX 78539, or to Franklin City Church, at 230 Commerce Drive, Franklin, IN 46131. As flowers fade – and Kirsten has allergies – we would prefer to have all monies contributed towards things that will invest in eternity for others.

As Duane enters eternity, his statement will be two-fold: 1) “the man on the middle cross said I could come”, and 2) “I’m Kay’s husband…I’m with her”.

For those planning to attend the visitation and/or funeral: my father said, “I do NOT want a suit and tie, therefore, since I’m not showing up in one, I do NOT expect anyone else to either.”

For the family’s sake, please do not attend if you have any signs or symptoms of illness. Masks are appreciated.

A funeral service will be held on Friday, December 8, 2023 at 2:00pm at Franklin City Church, located at 230 Commerce Drive in Franklin, Indiana, with visitation from 12:00pm until the funeral hour. Duane will be laid to rest at Greenlawn Cemetery in Franklin.
