George Bain Arnold
June 12, 1972 to Nov. 30, 2007
It is with unbearable sadness that the family announces the tragic and untimely death of Bain Arnold on Nov. 30, 2007 at the Markham/Stouffville hospital. Bain died suddenly of cardiac arrest from a food allergy reaction.
He was the loving son of George and Marion Arnold (nee Waddell) of Bobcaygeon, Ont., and nephew of Darlene Hall of Metcalfe, Carolyn McGregor of Ottawa, and Donald and Harold Waddell of Ottawa. He was the devoted husband of Margo Sage-Arnold, proud father of baby Wilkin, and a special brother of Paul of Brechin, Ont. He will be greatly missed by the Arnold and Sage families, and by his many nieces, nephews, and cousins, and by all of his wonderful friends.
He was the director of business development and hospitality for Angus Glen Golf Club in Markham, for a period of 10 years. In addition he had been a part-time instructor at Durham College. He was a contributing writer to Proshop and Golf Business magazines. More recently he had established his own company, GBA Consulting, a sports and entertainment consulting business. He was also a musician, an innovative philanthropist, a devoted family man, and most of all a lover of life. He touched the lives of many people, and was highly respected by all.
A memorial visitation was held at the Dixon-Garland Funeral Home in Markham on Dec. 5. A musical and spiritual celebration of Bain’s life is also being planned for mid January, 2008.
