Beyond his Naval education, he also attended Ohio University and the University of Rio Grande.

   Harold retired from Rockwell Automation (formerly Robbins & Myers) in Gallipolis, Ohio, where he served as their Quality Assurance Manager, making many friends along the way.

   Harold had a generous spirit, a brilliant mind, enjoyed a good laugh, loved music, and held a deep appreciation for ‘57 Chevys.

   He was a 50+ year member of Scioto Lodge #6, F. & A. M., Chillicothe, Ohio; and belonged to VFW Post 108 and American Legion Post 62 in Chillicothe, Ohio.

   A heartfelt thank you to Dr. Agnes Enrico-Simon, an exceptionally compassionate physician and friend for many years who was there at the very end, grieving alongside his family.
