Harold enjoyed many things such as pushing snow, taking long rides with his wife, especially at Deer Creek and to his family, he was known as the “King of Croquet”, always using the blue mallet. In addition, Harold enjoyed spending time with his family most of all and will be dearly missed by all who loved him.
