    I am saddened to hear that my neighbor has passed. After many talks he always left me with words of wisdom. Several I incorporate into my daily life.
    He demanded respect from the neighborhood kids and wasn’t afraid to put in his two cents. He always had a soft side for my youngest. Often my son would receive treats from him. Harold kept a close look on the neighborhood bullies and made sure they didn’t mess with my boys.
    The neighborhood will never be the same. But we certainly are much better for knowing Harold and the few memories we made.

    I would’nt even know where to begin with all the memories our family shared with Harold. When we moved next to him he came over the very first day letting us know if we ever needed anything to just holler. Many days were spent with him. We loved taking Harold where ever we went…to the store, trips to Grand Rapids, family holidays,birthdays and so much more. Harold was a heart of Gold always being a man of his word and a gentle helping man…he would do anything for anybody…like getting the mail for his neighbors without them even asking, raking their lawns, shoveling their sidewalks,taking their trash to the road, and much more. My family will miss and cherish ever moment we had with him especially my husband and young son…Harold loved us with all his heart and made sure we knew it every time we were around him he’d say “Your family sure means a lot to me I like you folks”. Well Harold you mean a lot to us and we love you and will miss you!

    Harold we share alot of good memories together, some better than other but nonetheless they were memories. I wish we had more time together on this planet together, but that is life. You gave it your all, you never were a quitter. I know this is a tough time for us all, we know Harold is in a better place. His last words to me were ” Dustin i’m content with life, if I die now I know where I am going. I will be pain free and in heaven.” With that Rest in Peace my friend We love you!


    Going to Bill’s Barber Shop won’t be the same without seeing him. He will be missed.
