Harold started out life as being a famous triplet. Being born in 1933 as a surviving triplet was not commonplace. Harold and his sisters were featured in the local newspapers of the time. He often talked about going places, with his sisters when they were children, and being recognized as “those famous triplets.” Later in life, Harold became a Master Model Railroader, who won awards for his artistry and attention to detail. Over the years, he belonged to different model railroading groups in both New York and Florida. In addition, Harold always enjoyed learning the latest technology. He was one of the first in the family to own an iPad. He also taught computer basics to other seniors at the local community college in Palm Bay. He enjoyed spending time with family and friends. He was especially fond of any opportunity to go out to breakfast; sit, talk, eat, and drink coffee.

As well as 13 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, his loving baby Sister Janet Roccisano, and stepsister Joan Lawrence.
