Donald Craig Arenth, 57, a highly regarded interior designer who created spaces as diverse as the Center Club when it was at 1 Charles Center, the Kuwaiti Sheraton Hotel and the Foreign Affairs Building of Brunei, in Southeast Asia, died yesterday after a long illness.
Mr. Arenth, of Bolton Hill, died at the Kingsville home of a friend, Frederick C. Petrich, a voice teacher with whom he had studied. He had been a patient at Johns Hopkins Hospital from Oct. 22 until Monday.
A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Feb. 10 at Memorial Episcopal Church, Bolton Hill. Combined choirs of that church and Brown Memorial Presbyterian Church will sing. Mr. Arenth sang bass in both choirs at different times.
