Dear Neva and family, to say that Harold had a celebration throughout his life is an understatement! We so loved the photo gallery of all the family and you all are certainly a lovely lot. Arbor Terrace at Crabapple has been so very fortunate to have Neva and Harold living with us and being an enormous part of that living. Harold's wit, gracious smile and willingness to add his helpful suggestions will indeed be missed. "I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you." John 14:18 Linda Lee Weigel, AT-Crabapple

The people who “got” Harold recognized the quick mind and subversive wit that bubbled beneath every sideways glance and raised eyebrow. You were my hero, Dad, my champ. I love you and I will carry you with me always.

A fine gentleman; we liked Harold a lot. Purchased a great home from him on Horseshoe Lane So. in Henrietta in 1965. We'd like to offer our sympathy to his family.
