Slain officer called 'fabric of this community'

Arkell, 48, was born in Brentwood and grew up there, attending local schools and graduating from Exeter High School. In recent years, he coached girls lacrosse at the high school, where his two daughters attend.
Kiley has known Arkell for the past few years since becoming principal of the school.
“They are just great kids,” Kiley said “They are talented athletes ... but the way they conduct themselves in the hallways here is a tribute to what Steve Arkell is and how he raised his daughters. They represent all of the ideals we hope to develop in our students.”
Lamoine said he would occasionally see Arkell at fire and emergency calls.
“He always did good work and was very meticulous,” Lamoine said.
He loved the store’s homemade doughnuts and would buy cat food for the stray cats he rescued as the animal control officer, said Kelyn Dow, the store manager.
A candlelight vigil in Arkell’s honor was held Tuesday night at Brentwood Recreation Center.
Darcie Isabelle of Lee, a former neighbor of Arkell’s, was among hundreds who attended. She said she remembers Arkell from growing up in Brentwood.
Of the vigil, she said: “It was good seeing people reuniting with people we grew up with and lived in this town with and everyone coming together as a community.”
U.S. Sens. Kelly Ayotte and Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire each spoke about Arkell’s death.
“Citizens across New Hampshire are mourning the loss of Officer Arkell, whose bravery and courage represented the very best of our state’s law enforcement community,” Ayotte said. “Our hearts go out to his grieving family, to his friends and to his fellow officers, as well as to the people of the town of Brentwood he served so well.”
