Harold was fantastic person. I'm one of the lucky ones who got to go hunting with him for the past 50 years. The first time was deer hunting in South River when I was still in high school. You learn a lot about a person when you spend a week in a hunting camp with them and everything I learned about Harold was good. Harold was a very good shot. He seldom missed as deer. He was very knowledgeable about firearms and hunting.
Harold had a great personality and was a good story teller. One of my favorite stories he told us was about his experience in Nigeria designing a factory and living in very basic and substandard living conditions. Harold had the gang hanging on the edge of our seats imagining the unbearable conditions he lived through.
The hunting camp will never be the same without Harold. He will be missed by all of us.
