  1. Aunt Evelyn, Sharon, Marty, Jane, Casey, Melissa, Kyle and Blair:
    It is hard to express how saddened we are for the loss of Uncle Harold. We will always cherish the memories of his laughter, sense of humor and stories that he would tell about life “up on the farm” or overseas in North Africa and Italy. I will treasure the times I had strolling and talking with him for the rest of my life.

    He was a patriot who served our nation proudly, a loving husband, father, grandfather and uncle and a faithful and active member of his church. He is in the Lord’s precious company and at peace.

    You have our deepest and most heartfelt sympathy for Uncle Harold’s loss.

    Brandon and Karen Smith

    Aunt Evelyn,
    I feel so blessed to have had such a wonderful Uncle in my life. He was a kind and gentle man. You as well have been a wonderful Aunt to me. I have so many great memories to cherish throughout my childhood and adult life. I will miss him terribly. My prayers and thoughts are with you, Sharon and Marty and their families. Love to you all,

  3. Harold was a very good man and I know he will be desperately missed but fondly remembered. As an “ex” son-in-law, I will always remember him with the utmost respect. He was always fair, kind and thoughtful to me. He was a wonderful Grandfather to my children and a loving father to Sharon and Marty. I am a better person having known him. I know he has moved on to a better place and is at peace.
