    Harrold was a great friend to our family down through the years. He helped my uncle Chris farm while my Dad Palmer was serving in the Korean War and he and my Dad remained friends to the end. I’ll always remember his quick smile and friendly demeanor growing up on the farm and in the years afterwards.

    We had hoped to visit him this summer but were unable to due to the pandemic. He will certainly be missed.
