    Uncle Harold gave his all in everything he did. He worked hard and he played hard. As his nephew I have fond memories of playing softball with him on the Hazelwood Apostolic Church team, watching him play on his McDonnell-Douglas teams, and attending Cardinal baseball games with him. He also gave me some of his trumpet mouthpieces and band music/accessories when I was in marching band in high school. He had played trumpet in band at Central High School (Redwings) in north St. Louis. I will miss my Uncle Harold. He was a great example of a man who loved the Lord, worked hard, and took advantage of every opportunity that came his way. I am glad he has at peace and has entered into his rest for a job well done. Love ya Unc.

    Played many games of league golf with Abby and even played in the final leagues playoff a couple years together. Enjoyed playing trumpet duets at FLorissant Valley Apostolic many years. Will miss our conversations while enjoying golf together. Also loved trout fishing together and making up leaders. Will miss my friend but know he’s back again with his love Marylou.

    Harold and Marylou was such a good looking couple at church. They were in the group behind us older ones. We have many memories of those years. Watching old movies at Marylou and Darlene’s Dads. We had a lot of fun way back then. Harold was so cute. Always had a smile. I was so proud of him when he carried on so strong after Marylou went to be with Jesus. He was a good father. I always enjoyed the many pictures I have seen and those he would post. So sorry he has left us. Prayers for the family. He is indeed be missed.
