Obituary of Arnold D. Masi

Arnold D. Masi, 90, of Deptford passed away on Wednesday, November 4th 2020 at Inspira Hospital in Mullica Hill. Arnie had been a resident at the Deptford Rehabilitation Center in Deptford and prior to that he had lived in Vineland. The House of Praise Church has ministered there at the center for about 10 years. It was there that he was introduced to Jim Holmes, Kim Wilson and subsequently to House of Praise. In the past three years Jim Holmes and Kim Wilson headed up the ministry for House of Praise, and connected with Arnie on a very special level. It was through them that he was brought to The House of Praise Church and became a faithful member of the church family. Arnie attended not only church services but all of the events of the church, including outdoor picnics, outreach events, events in homes, and of course eating out. Arnie was a Korean War veteran. Although very humble about his military past, House of Praise Church always honored him on special days such as Veterans Day and Memorial Day. He loved the Lord Jesus Christ and had great love for the church. He rarely missed a service or an event, despite his age of 90. He consistently displayed an excitement for the things of God, the Word of God, the old hymns of the faith and loved the music of the church. Arnie was an individual that one would always tend to remember. He was unique in so many ways, and really had a gift to touch the heart and impact all those around him. Pastor Steve’s personal comments about Arnie; We have so many wonderful memories of Arnie, he was one of the most incredible 90 year old men I have ever known. So many good laughs together! So many good worship services together at House of Praise! So many good times together at The Deptford Center! He was an incredible human being. When I think of Arnie… I think of friendship! I think of fun! I think of great hand clapping! I think of laughter! I think of candor and great humor! I think of humility! I think of singing the precious old hymns of the faith! I think of him saying to me (hand clapping) “Rev, I’m ready to return to chapel!” I think of him thanking us, telling us that he returned to church only because of all of us at House of Praise! I think of the video we have of him saying that the Lord saved him there. I think of someone who loved Jesus! Yes, I will miss him terribly. He can never be replaced in my life, he was a unique individual, a phenomenal creation of Almighty God, but now heaven has him but we will be united again soon. I love you, Arnie. Pastor “Rev” Steve.
