Harold enjoyed tinkering and building things.  He loved to collect “discarded junk” from people, dismantle it and then recycle it to the selvedge yard where he would make a few dollars.   He was an avid hunter and enjoyed spending time with his family.  He was a huge John Wayne fan. John Wayne was his hero and he enjoyed watching any movie with John Wayne.

I knew Harold from working at Piper as well as living on Gravel Hill and seeing him when he delivered stone. Most of us living on the hill worked at Piper until Piper moved out. Harold was a great guy and will be missed.
