Harold was such a wonderful man! He had a loving and kind spirit and was always so kind in word and deed. He also was great to work with and had an amazing memory for part numbers. Called him "Rain Man"... he could remember very long part number, quantity and locations without any backup except his brain. Loved him dearly...

Harold will be missed by many, especially me. I had started working with Harold in 1990 and we quickly grew to be close friends. I could always count on Harold to brighten my days with his sweet smile and a big hug. He always made sure people knew that he cared about them. I wish I could have spent more time with him but I guess the Lord had different plans. Harold loved his family and friends with a true unconditional love and he was a very special person and I love him very much.

Harold brought calmness to my life and was a welcome ray of sunshine. He was so tender-hearted, enjoyed family get-togethers, loved me even when I was an un-ruly child and did not place conditions on receiving or giving love. I will never forget his kindness to me, my Mama or my Daddy. What wonderful memories I have of him! He was so very good to Dennis and all of our family. He was a blessing to the Anders' family. My thoughts and prayers are with Dennis and all of Harold's family.

I am shocked and saddened to hear of Harold’s passing. He was always sweet and kind to me and always trying to say something to make me laugh. He will be sorely missed. If you need anything don’t hesitate to call.
