Harold and I grew-up and played baseball together as young boys.  Harold's dad had a service station on the corner of Maple and West Street, less than a block away from my house.  His dad was a racecar driver and I always admired how exciting life seemed for Harold, being part of a race family.  His dad's race cars were really cool and Harold knew all about them.  Harold Sr. was actually the top driver in the country at one time (1950s & 60s).

Harold was great to be around.  I can't recall ever knowing a more fair minded and even tempered kid.  He was always competitive and seemed to get "salty" (very good) really quick at everything he did. He was a 'hard charger', but very fair minded.

I did not keep in touch with Harold after H.S., but I am sure he enjoyed life as well as having made life a joy for those around him.  I am very glad I knew him.
