Arnell was born August 18, 1939 to Carl and Myrtle Johnson of Melfort, Saskatchewan, where he lived and worked until moving to Saskatoon in 2015 to be closer to his children and grandchildren.

He farmed and ran his own business, AJ Sheet Metal, until 2005. Arnell enjoyed visiting with friends, reminiscing about old times, camping, and fishing at northern lakes.
