Harold and I were fellow officers of the Future Farmers of America Chapter, Houston High School, Houston, MO. Later, he and his family provided a home away from home for me as a freshman at Missouri State. My Christian faith was encouraged by attending church with them. J. Mark Vandivort

I wish my health was good enough to attend services. I love this family so much! I got the pleasure of working directly with Harold for several years on printing projects for his company, in addition to knowing this family personally through church and fellowship. You will never meet any family better than this one! He will be missed. I’m sure my mom and dad are rejoicing with Doris in heaven that he has joined them! Praying for you through this time of grief.

Michelle and I were just recalling some of the adventures we went on. We had such a good time going with you to the Bahamas and other exotic locations in the Caribbean. We were so blessed that you came into our lives and we got such precious time with you whether that be vacations, family outings, and holidays. When Michelle came up with the perfect Harold Christmas gift in 2018, tickets to a Cubs/Cardinals game, I counted the days until we got to take Harold to Wrigley Field. Sadly, his illness set it just prior to us going, and he was unable to go. I have always been sad about that, as I had really hoped to create a special memory for all of us in one of baseball's true shrines. (Go Cubs! Sorry Harold, I couldn't resist. Just glad you never held it against me.) I have always heard in the father and son relationship, that when the elder passes, the son always wants just a little more time. I guess if I had that little bit more of time, it would be that game at Wrigley with you cheering for your favorite Cardinals. At least we both cheered for the Chiefs, and it was an honor for you to wear my cap as you cheered the Chiefs on in the playoffs this year. Thanks for adding light to our lives! While I have never lost a parent, I am learning losing a step-father is much tougher than I could ever imagine. Thanks for everything.
