Harold was a wonderful and funny man. Oh, the stories he would tell. True or not, they were funny. My best to all.

I'll never forget the time that a group of us were sitting at lunch at The Hartford just talking. I had picked up several ketchup packets and was fiddling with one (more like twisting it) while we were talking. All of a sudden the ketchup packet broke open. I looked up and there was Harold with a streak of ketchup kitty corner across his face!!! That was one of the only times I ever saw him speechless!! Harold always had a story to tell ~ be it the guy who jumped off the tower building and his Timex was still ticking, Dampy the stuffed pheasant being kidnapped, or his neice Cathy's boyfriend with the balloon for a head!! I'm sure he's up in Heaven telling those same stories to anyone who will listen. Sleep well Harold......you will be missed!!! -from Cindy (you know Harold, the one who wouldn't take your check!)

Harold is still remembered for his bird and time stories to this day. Harold always made us laugh no matter what. Funny thing you never knew whether Harold was telling a true or fake story! He had us guessing all the time. He will be sorely missed by all those who knew him! My sincere sympathies to you and your family Bertha!

Bertha, Harold was a wonderful, kind and entertaining friend. He was so well like by his neighbors and the community of Saybrook Manor. He will be truly missed by us all. Love & Hugs, Paul & Bonnie
