Arnold P Weible Jr

Arnold P. Weible of Huntington Beach, California, passed away peacefully on September 7, 2005 at age 58.  Born January 24, 1947, Arnold was a lifelong resident of California.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Arnold and Grace Weible, and a younger brother, John Patrick (SPHS '72), whom he loved beyond measure.

Arnold is survived by his partner, Michelle Anthony, with whom he shared many joyous years of travel and companionship; brothers Harold (Linda) of Corona (SPHS '57), Curtis (Robin) of Chino Hills, and Mike (Shelley) of St. Charles, Illinois (SPHS '70) and eleven nieces and nephews comprise his immediate family, but Arnold was also one of 34 first cousins scattered all over the United States.  Arnold loved fine wine and golf, but his drive for excellence and passion for work will be remembered by all who knew him.

Bill Sampson (1964)


I remember well spending "study hall" our entire senior year 7th period with Mrs. Phair in the library, who just joined you in Tiger Heaven.  We "studied" Hot Rod and discussed the nuances of 55 Chevys, 426 Hemis, Don Garlits, Stone Woods and Cook and the A/GS cars at the drags.  BUT, the car for which we both lusted was the Porsche [I later learned the model designation was 356] - one of which, probably a B was owned by Carroll Edwards, the junior high gym coach.  We agreed there was no more bitchin' vehicle.  I remember when you got your 914 you brought it by to show me at my folks' house.  You were justifiably proud.  

When we bought our 1964 Porsche 356 C Coupe back in 2001 I thought of you, tried to find you without success.  Alas, I should have tried harder since I'm sure we would have both enjoyed chatting about the car and the drags.  I promise you I'd have let you drive the coupe.  If I'm buried in it I'll still give you the chance.  It's a little late for both of us to "catch" girls with it, but, I promise you, they ALL love it even though I'm now personally invisible to women.  

Even over all the years I miss you my friend.


Bill Sampson '64
