CAMBRIDGE, Neb. — Harvey N. Arnold, age 72, of Cambridge, passed away at the Cambridge Memorial Hospital on Sunday, Nov. 6, 2022.

He was born in Lexington, Neb., on Feb. 23, 1950, to Dorrance and Evelyn (Klooz) Arnold. Harvey attended school in Farnam and later at Curtis. After graduation, he attended Kearney State College, receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in business.

Harvey was a hard-working farmer, raising a variety of row crops (corn, wheat and soybeans) along with prairie hay. He and Jerri Lou raised a herd of Gelbvieh cattle. In his spare time, Harvey enjoyed hunting quail, pheasants, and deer. On vacations from the farm, they visited Bryce Canyon, Zion National Park, Arches National Park, all in Utah, Glacier National Park and the Grand Canyon, but their favorite was a trip to Sequoiah National Park in California.
