Harold worked at Swan Island boat docks out of Portland, Ore., welding ships for a time. He was also an excellent body and fender man/mechanic and worked on old cars which was his passion.

When he was little he would belt out “Jesus Loves Me” when he took a bath, you could hear him clear downstairs. Harold loved children and had a special connection with Jezzireya. They spent a lot of time together playing Yahtzee while Stephanie helped sort his meds and ran
errands for him. They both had a very special place in Harold’s heart.
