Harold was one of those rare experiences in my life where I had just met him not a year ago, yet it felt like I’d known him all my life. I had moved in next door to Harold and Kaye last November and he was the first (and still only) neighbor to greet and welcome us. Well, he encouraged a couple of neighbors to come and meet me…while they were right there anyway doing something and I was out front at the same time. And then, over time, he filled me in on everything that happened in the neighborhood over the last 13 years…or so, whether I needed to know these things or not! I probably know more about our neighborhood than some of the original residents! That was Harold. So easy to know and talk with. And talk…well, he could talk. I remember one fine summer day Kaye was in the back yard doing some work and Harold was at his usual post at our common fence talking to me as I was pretending to get work done in my yard…and I finally lobbed a question Kaye’s way, “How do you get anything done around your place with him talking all the time?” She simply said, without even looking up or skipping a beat, “Just ignore him.” He looked at me with his trademark quizzical smile and shrugged his shoulders and took up talking right where he left off! And we continued to trade “war stories” and probably lies across the back-yard fence on a regular basis and I never could get to where I would ignore him. It was so nice actually having a neighbor. Mostly we never get to know our neighbors these days. But it was actually hard NOT to get to know Harold. All I know now is I will miss Harold more than I can express. I am so glad I got to know him for even the short while I had with him. He was a true and rare blessing in my life.

Harold was such a wonderful husband to my sister! I’ve never seen her so happy;he always put a smile on her face! Two people so in love that they were like “One”!❤️💙 I was going through a very difficult time in my marriage and Harold insisted I come out to Colorado and stay with them for as long as I wanted! He paid for my ticket,spoiled me when I was there and always so caring and thoughtful! I know my life was blessed having known Harold and he truly will be missed by many!
