Harold was an auto mechanic by trade and an adventurer by choice. He loved to travel and on one occasion left Michigan for Florida only to end up in California for the winter. While he could be stubborn and strong willed, he loved his family and was extremely dependable and hardworking, if it could be fixed, Harold was your guy. Never one to shy away from a challenge, Harold learned to water ski at the age of 45. He will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved him.
