Arnold H. McLeod 1923-2007 Arnold H. McLeod, 84, of The Briarlea, Moncton passed away peacefully at the Moncton Hospital on Wednesday, July 18, 2007. Born in South Branch, Kings Co., son of the late Fred and Hazel (Hall) McLeod. Arnold will be sadly missed by his wife of 62 years, Marjorie (Midge); son, Bob (Gail); daughters, Susan Burke (David), Kathy Duncan (Peter), Elizabeth Matson; 11 grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and sister, Pearl Carroll. Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his son, Stephen (1977). Arnold started his education career in Pine Glen, Gunningsville, Sussex and Rothesay, then came to Moncton as principal of Victoria School, became the first principal of Queen Elizabeth School and later moved into the School Board Office and became District Director, where he was well respected by his colleagues. In the 1950's, Arnold hosted the local TV show "The Little Red School House". Arnold introduced the Home and School Association concept to Moncton. He served on advisory boards for the YMCA, CNIB, Boy Scouts, NB Arthritic Society, and was a member of the Moncton Rotary Club. Arnold was an active member of First Baptist Church, serving in many capacities, and was a Deacon Emeritus. He also served on committees with the Atlantic Baptist Convention, on the Board of Directors with Atlantic Baptist College, and was Chairman of the Forward Planning Committee with the Canadian Baptist Mission Board for six years. During his career, he was awarded the Samuel Laycock Memorial Award by the Canadian Home and School Association, a Distinguished Service Award by the Canadian Association of School Administrators, and an Outstanding Community Service Award by the Governor General of Canada. Arnold loved life, his family and his friends. He enjoyed his many winters in Florida and the games of tennis he played daily. There he was president of the Home Owners Association and Chairman of a Scholarship Committee, aiding worthy students to attend Community College in Fort Myers. The past two and a half years were a challenge as he sat in his wheelchair battling a muscular disorder, but he did it with dignity and was an inspiration at The Briarlea leading regular chapel times and quiz afternoons, and befriending the girls who so lovingly cared for him. Visitation at Ferguson Knowles Funeral Home, 1657 Mountain Road, Moncton (858-1995) Friday, 2 to 4, 7 to 9. Funeral Service at First Baptist Church, 157 Queen St., Saturday, July 21, 2007 at 2 p.m., Rev. Dr. Richard Jackson officiating. Reception following the service. Interment, Fair Haven Memorial Gardens. In Arnold's memory donations to the Arnold H. McLeod Scholarship Fund or memorial of choice would be appreciated. www.fergusonknowlesfh.com July 20, 2007
