Arnold Joseph Valle

Arnold “Arnie” Joseph Valle, 78, of West Chester, PA passed away peacefully on November 27th, 2022.

Born in Philadelphia, PA on March 29, 1944, Arnie was the son of the late Dominic and Elizabeth (née DiPietro) Valle.

Arnie was the beloved husband of Judith Ann (née Maxwell) Valle; loving father of Steven J. (Susan), Michael J. (Amy), and Nicole M. Paige (John); proud grandfather of Sarah, Anna, Connor, Trent, Steven, Jessica, Kaitlin, and Andrew; dear brother of Josephine Kennedy and Loretta Leiti.

In his early childhood days, he served as an altar boy at Saint Philomenia’s parish. As a teenager, he embraced being a local, performing as a mummer in the fancy division of the New Year’s parade. He loved to watch Philadelphia Eagles and Phillies games. Arnie met his future wife, Judy, while he was a student at Monsignor Bonner High School. They were married in 1964.

Arnie started his career in the printing industry at Parade magazine, eventually moving to sales and customer service roles at Verizon and Synthes. He served 30 years in the Army Reserves, retiring as a Sergeant Major. He enjoyed volunteering; greeting new Coast Guard recruits at the Philadelphia Airport, assisting at the Chester County Food Bank, touring patrons at the Helicopter Museum, and honoring veterans by placing gravesite flags with the American Legion.

As a Grandfather, Arnie loved going to his grandkids’ many sporting events and dance performances. He also loved spending annual vacations with his family at the Jersey shore. Arnold’s big laugh and kind heart will be truly missed by all.
