Harold, our Dad, Grandfather, Brother, Brother-in-law Uncle and Friend loved laughing, watching Sanford & Son, spending time with family and listening to music on Sunday evenings with his Best Friend and son, Barry. He was a Man of Great Faith, Strength and Resilience who taught us to speak life into any situation. He was truly “A Mighty Man of Valor”.

We will always remember his presence at all family gatherings. He was a kind and gentle man who will be deeply missed. Our hearts go out to his family for we know of this loss ourselves. Though we think we are prepared, we never really are. So, give yourselves a chance to grieve and look with gratitude to all the beautiful memories you were able to share.
