Harold was a "Jack of all Trades." He could do anything. He laid carpet for Woodie Wilson at his furniture store. He farmed with Don Kane. He worked on a pig farm for Don Rash. He helped with the construction of the Optima Dam. He drove a semi truck for Nash Finch Company. After retiring from Nash Finch, he worked with his brother Bob in construction. We have all said, if he built something, he did it right! If you couldn't figure something out, you could call Harold, and he knew how to fix it!

He was a Christian man and a member of the Grant Street church of Christ, who worked hard to provide for his family.
