Harold will be truly missed by his BINGO BUDDIES, with his warm smile and loving personality. May you rest in peace Dear FRIEND
I remember a special event during a Valentine dinner at the church about 6 or 7 years ago when Christian TV personalities David & Kirstan Hart were the headline performers singing for the evening. Harold asked me if I would sit at their table, and I had a most enjoyable time getting to know the Harts. I also got to talk on the phone with famed Christian pianist, Dino Kartsonakis, who is a friend of the Harts. Very memorable, and all because of Harold’s thoughtful invitation. I am sure there are many stories from others who can recall his ability to bring things together all for the glory of God! May God’s blessings be upon Harold’s life and may he be welcomed at The Master’s Table in Heaven.
You will be truly missed. Such a great neighbor and friend. Our deepest condolences goes out to the family. The family will be in our thoughts and prayers.
Good memories of Mr Harold as a volunteer at University Hospital! He will be missed!
