    Harold was one of the hardest working people I think I’ve ever met. He was also such a kind and caring person. I will never forget the letter he sent me after my grandma (Helen Kahl) passed away. He will be missed. My thoughts to Lesta, & the entire family during this difficult time.

    Harold was the kindest and most caring man I have ever known. We met when I was working at Casey’s in Malvern. There were very few days that he didn’t stop in to see if I needed help with anything. Lifting, moving something, scooping snow, pulling weeds or mowing- he helped me with so much over the years and never asked for anything in return. So hard working! One of the best things to come from that job was my friendship with Harold! I will miss him so. My thoughts and prayers are with Lesta and their family. May you find comfort in your many memories of him.
