12/17/11 - NNHS Newsletter - Spencer Arnold
James Spencer Arnold, Jr.
Hampton High School Class of 1948
Friends and Schoolmates,
We have another sad edition of the NNHS Newsletter this Saturday morning. Spencer Arnold, Hampton High School Class of 1948, passed away in Yorktown on Wednesday, December 14, 2011, at the age of 80.
He was the brother of Dave Arnold ('65) of VA, and the brother-in-law of Pam Smith Arnold ('65) of VA.
From Fred Mays ('60) of VA - 12/14/11, 10:02 - "Brother of Dave Arnold ('65 of VA)":
In case you have not been
Spencer Arnold passed
away tonight. He is the older brother of Dave Arnold, '65. I believe
Spencer was 18 years older than Dave. He was a retired minister and a
member of Northside Christian Church. He was well regarded and will
certainly be missed. He graduated from Hampton High School. Arrangements
have, of course, not been made at this point.
Oh, Fred, I am so sorry to hear this! I met Spencer at Dave and Pam's celebration seven years ago, and was instantly impressed by a sense of his innate goodness and kindness. He will be missed by many, and our deepest condolences are extended to Dave and all of Spencer's family. Thank you for letting me know!

Faith Looks Up to Thee
Words by Ray Palmer, 1830
Music by Lowell Mason (08 Jan 1792 - 11 Aug 1872), 1832
My faith looks up to Thee,
Thou Lamb of Calvary,
Now hear me while I pray,
Take all my guilt away,
O let me from this day
Be wholly Thine!
May Thy rich grace impart
Strength to my fainting heart,
My zeal inspire!
As Thou hast died for me,
O may my love to Thee,
Pure warm, and changeless be,
A living fire!
While life's dark maze I tread,
And griefs around me spread,
Be Thou my Guide;
Bid darkness turn to day,
Wipe sorrow's tears away,
Nor let me ever stray
From Thee aside.
When ends life's transient dream,
When death's cold sullen stream
Over me roll;
Blest Savior, then in love,
Fear and distrust remove;
O bear me safe above,
A ransomed soul!
