He also worked at the A & P Plant in Horseheads and then for Steuben County Buildings and Grounds in Corning, NY, until his retirement in 1996. Harold was a lifelong member of the Kanona United Methodist Church, where he held the position of trustee, was a member of the Methodist Men's Club, youth leader, provided for the many chicken dinners at the church, and was one who helped make sure there were always flowers planted out front of the church. Harold was a wonderful husband, father and grandfather. He loved spending time with his family. He especially enjoyed dancing the polka, square dancing, snowmobiling, "mopeding", his golf cart, card parties and gardening with his wife and family. He will be remembered for his caring ways; bringing vegetables, showing us how important it is to stop and see others for a visit, especially sick friends and families who had lost loved ones.
