Arnold A. Pinney

Arnold A. Pinney, 84, a longtime resident of Dublin, passed away on Jan. 3, 2021, in the comfort of his home surrounded by his loving family.

He was born on July 28, 1936, in New Boston, the son of the late Joseph and Edythe (Collins) Pinney. He was raised in Dublin, where he attended area schools.

Following his schooling, Arnold served his country in the U.S. Army.

On May 24, 1967, Arnold married Madelene Daigneault.

Arnold had been employed as a plumber, heavy equipment operator, construction worker and worked for the State of New Hampshire and the Town of Dublin for many years. For the last 30 years he was a caretaker for close friends. He was always involved within the community of Dublin, which he loved greatly. He had served as the Chief of Police, he was a Selectman and had been the Supervisor of the Checklist.

Arnold was a member of the American Legion. He enjoyed tending to his garden. More than anything, he cherished time he was able to spend with his family, especially with his grandchildren. He will be fondly remembered for his kind and thoughtful nature.

Arnold will be dearly missed by his wife of more than 53 years, Maddi Pinney, of Dublin; his children: Michele “Mikki” Regan; Shelly Pinney; Todd Pinney and his wife, Rosemary; Scott Andrew Pinney; Scott Allen Pinney; Robin Vaughan; and Michael Pinney; his sister, Sheila Van Blarcom (Jim Gibbons); his sisters-in-law: Helen Pinney; and Justine Mark (Terry Mark); his brothers-in-law: Joseph Daigneault (Ruth Daigneault); and Tom Daigneault; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews; and his special friends, Jay and Bunny Healy, of Dublin.

He was predeceased by his siblings Bernard, Clio and Pauline.

In keeping with Arnold’s wishes, there will be no services.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Arnold A. Pinney’s name to a charity of one’s choice.
