I married to Harold's niece and was his neighbor for about 3 years. This man was soft spoken and always cheerful
when you were around him. This man gave me a job at Allvac whiched started the craft I have used for almost 40 years.
He took me fishing and hooked me on the sport after one outing and been doing it since. He taught me how to
Make and grow a garden and maintain it. Been doing it since. His tractor was the first I ever drove and his boat was the first I ever fished out of.
I seen this man take care of his family
members in sickness and health in his elderly years and still maintain a smile
and soft spoken voice when my wife and
I would visit him.
Harold I know you're happy being with
Jesus,Blake and Guy, but you will be missed.

Mr. Harold was truly one of my heroes. His character speaks for itself. He set a great example for all men. He was a loving husband, dad, grandfather and a great grandfather. The world would be a better place to live if we could all be more like him.
