Never did beat Doc at golf! We sure had some good times. He was a man that nobody could ever forget. Loved him like a brother. Now he's with Jesus. Amen.

It has been one of the blessings in our life to have known Harold for these many years. Harold and I have been friends since high school and always made my day to meet and visit with him. He also made my back feel better several times in my life. Rossie and I will cherish the memories of him in our lives. Our thoughts and prayers will be with Della Marie and his family during this time of remembrance.

God grant you His peace.

Harold was my best Air Force "buddy" during our time together in Japan. He was my 'spiritual encourager' as well as a close friend, which has endured for these past 65 years. After the military duty, Harold and Delmarie continued as very 'close friends' even as we have been separated by some miles.

So sorry for your loss we will always remember Doc as a gentle and caring man

Janet and Ron Cisco Jun 28 2018 12:00 AM

We will always remember Doc as the caring, devoted Christian man he was. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
