Oh boy, this is a tough loss. Harold was a tinsmith at Delco and I had the privilege of working around him for many years. Harold had such a wonderful personality that he just sparkled. I loved his big, warm smile. And... was he ever smart. I really enjoyed talking with Harold. His death is a blow to society; we need more like him. May he rest in peace.
