Clyde Raymond Arndt passed away at 6:59 p.m. on Monday, January 21, 2008 at the Hannibal Regional Hospital.

He often told the story of being baptized three times; once in a creek, then at the Methodist Church in Hannibal and a final time at the Farber Christian Church, where he served as an elder.

After retirement, Raymond and Louise moved to their farm south of Hunnewell where he spent 20 years enjoying his favorite hobbies of hunting and fishing.
