Such a good man, always having great interest in what was going on in my life. Always ready with some wholesome comic relief. You'll be missed my friend, now it's time to rest and spend time with the Lord.

Harold was a very kind man that would do anything for anyone. He loved to wood work and make people happy with the treasures he made from porch swings to butcher blocks. Harold thrived on knowledge; he always wanted to learn and study.

Nobody could put on a yard sale like Harold! He only dealt in $’s and I never saw anybody make as many dollars as he did ! He was born to sale!

He was an avid lover of history and LOVED NASCAR and INDY racing.

Harold was a gentle soul and one of God’s special people.

I was honored to know him.

Rest In Peace my Friend

Years ago Harold turned a negative incident known to only the two of us into a positive effect for me. I thanked him at the time and never forgot. Harold, I still thank you for that and I thank you for your service to our country.
