Chapel Oaks Funeral Home in Hiawatha
Hiawatha , KS

Anthony Arnold, of Hiawatha, passed away in his parent's home in Lancaster, on December 14th 2023. He was born February 1st 1999 in Hiawatha, just one minute before his twin sister.

Anthony was an avid fisherman and huntsman, he enjoyed his days at the lake with his dad, siblings, uncles, and grandparents. He loved children and often visited his grandmother's daycare, only to rile them up and leave saying "I did my job" - just like his Poppy. Anthony would do absolutely anything for anyone, no matter where and no matter when. His nephew was his ultimate pride and joy.

Anthony is survived by his parents Rose Mary and Sonny Berry of Lancaster, his twin sister Aleece Arnold of Overland Park, brother Colton Berry of Jasper, brother Chris Johnson of Illinois, close friend Joshua Sangrait of Silver Lake, and siblings Jason Berry and Taylor Oden who gave him his greatest gift and nephew Jaxon Berry of Atchison.

He is survived by his grandparents Wayne and Venita Ruhnke of Hiawatha, Roger and Sabra Berry of Lancaster, and grandfather Richard Arnold of Padonia.

Anthony is also survived by his aunts Marissa Ruhnke of Hiawatha, Angela Entrikin of Hiawatha, and Rachel Arnold of the Kickapoo Reservation. Uncles Danny Grier of Hiawatha, and Larry Rathman Jr of Lancaster. Aunts and uncles Caleb and Juana Ruhnke of Hiawatha, Thad and Robin Jenkins of St Joseph, Chris and Jackie Eppens of Hiawatha, Richard and Jerrilyn Frazier of Manhattan, and many cousins.

He is also survived by Matthew Arnold and children.

Anthony was met in heaven by his big sister Emily Rose Bryant, Nana Rose Bryant, Papa Frank Despain, grandmother Lillian Berry, and great grandparents Poppy Lavern and Claire Dunavan.

A celebration of life will be held Thursday December 21st 2023. Visitation will be at the Baptist Church in Hiawatha at 1pm, with the funeral at 2pm, and dinner to follow.

In lieu of flowers, family suggests donations to Chapel Oaks Funeral Home, Hiawatha, to assist with funeral expenses
