I will miss my Uncle Penny so much. I will remember his laugh. Which only took about a minute after you started talking to him. He was always the feisty one. We had many late night conversations when he worked at HyVee.Marty and Misty I know there is a huge hole in your heart but fill it with memories of your wonderful father.

Harold was always so kind and and sweet to me and he was the first person I met at Grant Street. Im so sad that I haven't gotten to see him lately. Harold has helped so many people and always had words of wisdom and truth to speak. I know God has welcomed him through the golden gates of heaven. See you on the other side someday my friend. God bless 🙏



Our prayers go out to the family! Harold was always there for family, friends and neighbors. He was so witty and never failed to have a clever comment. We will always remember him with his smile and overalls.

I am yet another friend, who upon learning of Harold's passing from this world, immediately had the thought that our sweet friend is now meeting his GUS face to face. There is no way to account for just how many people Harold has helped to find a life that is happy, joyous and free....., but I am honored and grateful that I am one of the many. To his family- thank you so much for sharing him with us all these years. His "extended family" loves him dearly. His influence and love will continue through the many of us that experienced the wisdom and example he gave us by tirelessly sharing his experience, strength and hope.. I will miss you so much, my gentle, kind, friend in the overalls. -Tasia C.
