From Newport, Kentucky, Arnzen was a baseball and basketball star at Newport High School. He graduated in 1935, and went to Morehead State where he continued baseball and basketball. He was signed by the Cincinnati Reds and won the Spalding Trophy in 1937, given to the "Outstanding Minor League Player" of that season. He broke his leg sliding into second and the injury ended his playing career before making it to the major leagues. Arnzen wound up teaching and coaching basketball at Newport High School in Newport, Kentucky. In 22 years of coaching basketball, he never had a losing season. He was suspended in 1969 for holding unauthorized practices.

Stanley married Jean Rice (1921-1985) in 1937 and the couple had two daughters, Donna Dahmann and Joann Thinnes. Arnzen died in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky, in 1977.
