October 13, 1938 - January 17, 2022
Claude E. Arnwine, age 83, off Corryton, passed away Monday, January 17th, 2022. Born in Liberty Hill, Grainger County, TN, on October 13, 1938. Claude honorably served in the United States Army from 1961-1963, and retired from Knoxville Utilities Board in the Field Operations Department after almost 33 years of service. He loved his community of Corryton, working on his farm, helping others, and he never met a stranger. He battled a brutal lung disease for years with pure determination to live every day with grit and a love to serve others. Preceded in death by his wife of 41 years, Laura (Lee) Arnwine, his parents Edd and Edna (Helton) Arnwine and brother Bobby Arnwine. Survived by his brother, Edward Arnwine and sister, Doris Major; his daughter, Pamela Arnwine (and Jason) Hamby; his son, Scott (and Kristen) Arnwine; and his beloved grandchildren, Chloé Hamby, Matthew Hamby and Michael Arnwine. He was known by many as “Papaw”. Those who knew him absolutely loved him. Those who heard stories about him wanted to know him. He’s been described by his friends as a man’s man and willing to do anything he could to help others. He was a man of few words and loved through his actions. We will celebrate his life on Thursday, January 27, 2022 at 6:00 p.m. at Chilhowee Hills Baptist Church with a reception to follow the service. Our family has a huge “Papaw size” hole in our heart, but would be honored to hear how he impacted the lives of others. Family and friends will meet Friday, January 28, 2022 at 12:45 pm at Greenwood Cemetery for a 1:00 pm graveside service with military honors provided by Volunteer State War Era Veterans Honor Guard. All are welcome to attend. In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to be made in his honor to: Volunteer State War Era Veterans Honor Guard, P. O. Box 22122, Knoxville, TN 37933.
