He married the love of his life, Rose Strawhorn and he was blessed, by God, with boys. He was a family man who provided daily by working at Penthouse Manufacturing as well as Allen White Manufacturing. His family would tell you they were blessed to have such a wonderful father figure in their lives. He loved the Lord and was a member of Victory Baptist Church in Smithville. Throughout life, the thing he enjoyed most was spending time with his family and fellow church members. He loved to cut up and have fun yet he would get serious if family became the center of the discussion. He always listened intently to folks and had an answer for anything. Harold was an outdoorsman who loved to fish and occasionally hunt. When his health declined, he loved to read Louis L'Amour Western Novels and spend precious time with family. A true fighter, he went to dialysis where he met his best friend, Billy Wayne Smith. Together they prayed for guidance and they solved most of the world's problems.
