To Harold's Family: I have a Prayer that I have given for Harold and thought maybe you would like to give it too! But I will have to send it to you, since this site won't let me upload it because it says its not in the right format and I don't under-stand how to change it. Sorry! Therefore, someone needs to send me an email or call me at 1-801-825-0114, and give me an address, ok! I do remember a Kay Reunion at the Park by Roy High School in the early 90's where I wanted to sing a song that I had just written and I asked for volunteers to help me. Harold and my brother Loren came up and we sang it together. I have always appreciated the fact that they were willing to do that for me. God Bless All of You! Love Aunt Kathleen.

He was almost always around when the family got together for family reunions and events. I remember him always having a story to tell or a song to sing about his youth days. He was really nice and a great guy to have as a grandfather. He will sorely be missed by all who knew him.

I owe a lot to Harold. He taught me how to lay tile and what it means to earn a dollar. He was a very nice man and always made sure I was ok as he knew my mother was a single mom and struggled. . I thank The Lord for sending him my way . Rest in Peace Harold.
