But our Pop will be most remembered for being our father. He has provided us many life lessons, and humorous memories.

Harold is survived by his wife Connie of Winter Haven Fl, his daughter Julie and son in law Michael of Christiansburg Va, son David and daughter in law Jan of Niceville Fl, granddaughters Allison and Valerie, grandson Derik, granddaughter Holly, great-granddaughter Lily, step-daughter Shelly, and step-sons Sean and Kevin. Harold was pre-deceased by his father Harold, mother Louise, sister Evelyn, and brother Robert.

Good bye our Pop, we know a perfect round of golf and cooling off at the 19th hole awaits.
