Harold will be missed.  We loved his stories, watching OSU football games, gambling and eating at O'Charley's on Wednesdays because we got free pies.  

He was such a delight and always had a smile and hug for you!   Harold you are now with you love Peggy.....

My deepest sympathy for your loss.  It is our loss too. Harold was an integral part of our community for many years. He was a loyal friend, a highly respected business man, and generous with his  time and professional skills in his work with several community enterprises.
