Harold was a baseball player in his younger years and was known for his ‘nasty dancin’ knuckle ball. Anyone who tried to catch it, understands. He also loved to pitch horseshoes, cook breakfast for one or for many, He loved driving big trucks. The bigger the truck, the more he wanted to drive it. Harold was a Christian and a very dedicated member of The First Baptist Church of Oakboro where he served as a deacon since 1972, and was chairman on occasion. He was a proud member of the choir and the Brotherhood. Harold was always willing to help with anything that was needed around the church, especially anything to do with missions and cooking. He was a member of the disaster relief team that traveled to areas after hurricanes and tornadoes and cooked for hundreds of people. He was a proud member of Gideons International. He loved fishing and his last day on earth he went fishing with his family and even caught a few a fish himself. Above all, Harold was a family man, who loved his family and spending time with them.
The family would like to extend a special thanks to Fresenius Kidney Care of Albemarle and Hospice of Stanly County, also Dr. Woolwine and Nurses Kelly and Patty and Dr. Ricardo Vargas and Nurse Londa.
