It is with particular sadness to experience the passing of Harold, a very special person. Even as his health was failing , he fought so hard to regain his strength.
A member of America's greatest generation, Harold personified the qualities to which we aspire. Serving his country during its time of greatest need, he was proud of his military service. Harold was exceptionally dedicated in his work, despite the very long and arduous hours.
Meeting his future wife Betty Driscoll resulted in a lifelong commitment to her. As Betty's health began to decline, he never wavered in his dedication and love for her. He took every measure to ensure her comfort and the quality of her care. Even after her passing, he would continually mention how much he missed her.
We will miss Harold's smile, laughter, and sense of humor, very unique qualities. His positive attitude was always uplifting. He had a strong sense of family, even though we are related to Betty's side.
We always felt a special warm and close relationship with Harold and Betty.
May Harold and Betty rest forever together in each other's arms.

We met Harold and Betty through my parents when they would “winter” in Southern California. The Beaughans were wonderful people and never hesitated to lend a hand when they could.
After Harold sold his California home and stayed up here in Seatle, we would visit them at their home, or they would meet us up north at one of the casinos for lunch and some gambling. Harold always seem to be the lucky one and come home with some extra cash!
We will miss his smile and his sories of baseball and his many years at Langendorf bakery.
Our thoughts are with his family at this time. Harold is finally with Betty, once again.
