On June 8th, 2021, heaven gained a one-of-a-kind son, husband, father, and grandfather. At the age of
53, Arnold Lee Cagley, with his family and friends by his side, went to be with the Lord.
Arnold was born in the Philippines to Felicidad Cagley. At the age of 6, his father retired from the Navy
and moved the family to Kingston, Tennessee, where he met the love of his life, Nancy. Arnold and Nancy
were childhood friends and became high school sweethearts while attending Roane County High.
Arnold and Nancy married on December 17, 1988, and later had two children, Lindsey and Abigail. Arnold
worked for the Goody’s Corporation for 15 years. He spent the last 12 years working for Tennessee Valley
Authority (TVA) in their retirement services.
Anyone who met Arnold loved him. His infectious smile and humor drew people to him. Arnold coached
his girls in softball for the Kingston Girls Softball Association (KGSA) for many years. He and Nancy were
members of Morrison Hill Christian Church in Kingston. He attended a CLC men’s group where he was
able to grow in his relationship with the Lord. Arnold spent his years fishing, camping, traveling, shopping,
and woodworking until his grandchildren were born. Arnold became a Papa to four beautiful
grandchildren: Owen, Miles, Rylee, and Charlotte. Arnold was consumed with love for his grandchildren
and spent all his time with his family.
Arnold was an amazing friend, son, “Papa”, father, and husband. For years, Arnold and Nancy’s home has
been open to friends and family, and all were welcomed like family. His life reflected his love for the Lord
and for his family, and he will forever be missed.
