On Monday, January 16 Maurice Arnott, a beloved husband, father, and grandfather, passed away surrounded by his loved ones. He was eighty-eight years young. Maurice was born to Maurice James and Emily Arnott in Windsor England… “Right next to the Queen,” as he often said. Maurice served in the British Army and the Army Emergency Reserve. He served in the Royal Army Engineers. Maurice went on to work in the avionics industry and eventually started his own company, AMI Instruments. AMI specialized in the design and production of electro-mechanical simulated instruments and integrated training system hardware and as such frequently traveled to many countries.
Maurice was a gifted storyteller. He loved all things mechanical, especially planes, trains, and boats. He enjoyed many years of traveling, boating, and tinkering with his “toys” alongside his soulmate and best friend, wife, Christina Arnott. He was a devoted grandad and loved inappropriate jokes. He is survived by his wife, Christina Arnott, sister, Jean Sayers, daughter Kim Anderson and her husband Sherwood, daughter Heather Shavney and her husband Justin, stepson Seth Day and his wife Sara. Maurice is survived by his grandchildren Jason, Kaitlin, Creek, Rosalie, Gabriel and Saunders, and his great grandchildren Mina and Levi. Maurice is preceded in death by his son Mark Arnott. The remembrance of life ceremony will be held on Tuesday, January 24, at 12 p.m. at Butler Stumpff and Dyer in Tulsa, Oklahoma. In lieu of flowers donations may be directed to the American Diabetes Association.
