    We have had the pleasure of knowing Harold for 33 years,
    We had a few nicknames for him “Tar Man” and “Squirrel” Harold was always 
    willing to help out and give a hand were needed. He was a man with many talents and many friends. I will miss 
    our chats and our laughs together talking about the “big house” as we call it 
    so take care my friend and I know you are in good hands.

     It was my extreme pleasure to know Harold for some 10 or 15 years. He was one of the nicest men I ever met: kind, thoughtful, insightful, witty, clever, a very sharp mind, and, among other things, a nice guy to have coffee with. I cannot keep going with the superlatives, or it would be boring, but he deserves no end of them. He brightened the day of all those with whom he came in contact. He holds a huge place in my heart, and always will, and I shall miss him dearly. I wish I could be a tenth of the man, and the human being, he was. Whether people know it or not, we lost a really big-hearted person, and the world is a lesser place. I was very lucky to call him friend.
