So sorry to hear of Harold’s passing. I have great memories of visiting your home when I lived in Middlefield. Every body was always welcomed no matter what time of day it was. Harold was a fixture at Jason Kempton’s store evenings and we as young boys would gather around to hear his many stories and adventures of gold mines and working in the woods. He will be missed by many. Hold onto your memories. Rest in peace my friend.
Dear Sandra and family,

Betty and Sandy,
So sorry to hear that Harold passed away. We all spent many fun nights sitting together at Milton bingo and he was missed when he stopped going. He always had a joke to tell or a funny story to share. I know how much you both loved him and his passing is a big loss for your family. You are in my thoughts during this time of sadness and sorrow.

I am shocked to see that Harold has passed. It was just not that long ago he was in West End Grocery with me. …….thinking of you in the days ahead and take care of one another. My dad use to go to Harold’s all the time and one of the memories I still have etched in my mind was the time that one of dads ( Norman) cows escaped the pasture and ended up School St. and she ate most of Harold’s garden off.
So sorry to read of Harolds passing. Sending much love and sincere sympathy to all of the South Shore Millers.
Betty and Sandy sorry to hear of your loss.Harold will be missed by many,I remember the last time we talked,he was in his truck parked behind the Liverpool Pizza restaurant when I was picking up our supper.Always had a joke or story for anyone he met.

Sorry to learn of Harold’s passing. Remember the good times you all shared. Also open your Bible to John 5:28,29 as it deals with the resurrection that most dead people will receive in the future. There will be no sickness, sorrow or lack of anything important. What a great time that will be! All our love to his remaining families. Del and Mary.
