Arnold was one of the great influencers in my life: from the first year physics classes to my final year where he stood as my supervisor he always offered an uncompromisingly enthusiastic delight in seeing his students learn develop and finally graduate.
Although I went into industry I stayed in touch with Arnold, often taking him out to lunch at some obscure pub miles from anywhere, then back to his house for a tour of the garden and tea.
Always a gentleman, always full of unbridled enthusiasm about his latest project and always keen to hear about my family and work, our outings were always something I looked to immensely.
I will miss our trips, I will miss his enthusiasm and I will miss Arnold. They really don’t make them like that anymore!
God bless Arnold
