Sorry to hear of Harold’s passing. My only memory of him is from the early 70’s at the arena. I was skating along and must have gotten into Harold’s way. Next thing I knew, I was being picked up high in the air and twirled around like a ballerina, then I was set back onto my feet and he continued on his way. I was only about 11 years old and I never forgot the wonderful dance I had with him on the ice.
Sorry to hear of Harold’s passing. He was certainly well known around Liverpool. I’ve known him my entire life and never knew anyone that was any happier than he was. He always wore a smile. He was a talented skater, a great dancer, a loving brother and uncle and a true friend. My condolences to his family.

I am very sorry for your loss. Harold was a very nice and funny guy. I had the pleasure of meeting and interacting with him during my work placement at Hills View. He made each day fun. He had a great spirit and made people laugh. He will be missed.
Sorry to hear of Harolds passing. I will always remember the smile . RIP Harold
I was saddened to hear of Harold’s passing. I use to watch Harold as he glided effortlessly across the ice with such elegance, and wished I could skate just like him. Over the years, I had a view dances with Harold….he certainly had some smooth moves. It is sad that he is no longer with us….and will be missed by many. May he be at peace.
I am so very sorry for your loss . Harold was such a nice man with a wonderful smile . Harold made me laugh many times even when I was feeling down , (it was like, he somehow knew when I was sad) . He will always have a special place in my heart , he was my friend .

One of the nicest people a person could ever meet . Everyone should be lucky enough in their life to meet someone as nice as Harold … Years ago we used to go to Bwater chasin women, Harold would always tap the dash of his car on the way down and back and in his words it was “A Good old Car”

To all of Harolds family, my deepest condolences. My favourite memories were of heading to the rink as soon as I saw Harold dancing his way there with his skates over his shoulder. I watched in awe as this happy man glided so gracefully across the ice like no-one I had ever seen. Keep your memories close, for he will not be forgotten.

We are saddend to read of Harold’s passing. Our thoughts and prayers are sent out to the family.R.I.P Harold….
Jane C. Underwood, ASLSM
My thoughts and prayers are with all Harold’s family and friends at this sad time. Harold was a kind, thoughtful man who was always smiling and singing. My memories include dancing and after the dance was over, more dancing at the disco. We would enjoy sausages with all the trimmings from the wagon outside. He crafted wonderful art from wood, and was proud but humble about his achievements. Harold, rest in peace and rise in glory. Have a dance with Edna and Grace and please tell them and Tony I miss them too. Love Jane xo
I always admired Harold when he was skating at the rink. He was a beautiful skater and could glide along so magically. I would have loved to have had a skate with him, but he always skated alone. Please accept my condolences – he was a great person and always smiling.
I was very sorry to hear of Harold’s passing. By the time I heard about it, it was too late to make arrangements to make it to his service, but it did bring back many memories of my childhood of which Harold was a part. From the funny songs he seemed to be constantly making up to memories of him sitting down at the end of my grandmother’s table for supper. He will be missed by many. He is gone, but the memories will last a lifetime. Rest well, Harold. My deepest condolences to the rest of our family.

So sorry to hear of Harold’s passing. Growing up on Brunswick St. I have known Harold and his family all my life. I hardly ever missed a Sat and Sun skate. I can still visualize him skating backwards with his hands behind his back and a big smile.
RIP Harold, wonderful memories.

RIP Harold, I grew up on Brunswick st and fondly remember him. There was no other skater at queens memorial arena like Harold, he skated circle around everyone and if someone fell he would stand them back up on their skates and not even lose his rythem. He danced on the ice. He was a Great person.
Sending heartfelt sympathy to family and friends .remember him well.
Sorry for your loss. I remember him at the old rink skating round and round with out getting a sweat with a smile. Harold will be missed by all who knew him
To the family,
Mr Jarvis was a real gentleman !! He could always be seen holding doors open for others , sharing his smile daily with those he encountered and had a gentle ,caring soul. My sincere condolences to his family & friends. Go Bless.
