In lieu of flowers, tell a joke, share a smile and bring joy to others.

To the family of Harold, I am so sorry for your loss. Harold was a great guy. Seems like nothing was impossible for Harold, and he always had a smile on his face. I still have the Philco-Ford Team Apollo pin he made with the added colors he did by hand. May Harold rest in peace in Jesus's name.

I was the recipient of many of Harold’s stories and jokes! His friend (and my stepdad), Bob Bradford, enjoyed many hours on the golf course, and I relished those stories, too! I have one of Harold’s beautiful pens, and even got to do a great photo shoot with my choir students in his fancy, red convertible!
