He was born on April 25, 1952, in Wood River, the son of the late George J. and Betty J. (Wilson) Arnold.
Denny worked for multiple companies as a computer programmer. He was of the Baptist faith and enjoyed time on his computer, camping, admiring his cat, picking mushrooms, spending time outdoors and with his special friend Pam. He especially loved to spend time in the middle of a stream trying to catch the allusive lunker.
He is survived by his three siblings and their spouses, Georgia Kay Barnett of Wood River, Rhonda and Ron Miller of Bethalto, and Keith and Jill Arnold of Bethalto; and six nephews and nieces and their spouse, Theresa Shook, Stephen and Kelley Sherwood, Stephanie and Terry Geisler, Jacob and Lori Miller, Morgan Arnold and Mandy Lou Arnold.
He was preceded in death by his parents; a special friend, Pam; a special uncle, Joe Wilson; and his beloved yellow dog, Bobo.
Per his wishes, cremation rites were accorded.
Memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society and or the Humane Society.
