I met him when he visited Concordia University where his student Dr Anand was my colleague. I spent the afternoon
showing him a bit of Montreal. He had things to say that were fascinating. About Hua, about the oil business, about poverty, and his advice to me about some professional issues still guides me.
May his family be comforted among the other mourners of Zion and Jerusalem.

Although I only knew Harold Shapiro later in life as the father of my sister-in-law, Lorraine Schumacher, I could not help but feel that I was in the presence of an extraordinarily brilliant human being....who was a down to earth "mensch" and family man as well.
Our condolences to the family.

I was shocked and saddened to learn of Harold's passing; he was truly a great man. He was a mathematical mentor to my father and brother, and for a brief period I was his chess teacher. I loved his math stories and I still remember them in great detail as if I heard them yesterday. His intellect was legendary, extraordinary, but I remember fondly his great kindness, his generosity, his humanity. He enriched my life enormously and I am very grateful.

My entire family was devastated upon hearing of Harold's passing. I have known Harold since I was 8 Years old. My father William Forman was one of Harold's 41 PHD Students but more importantly Harold was my dad's dearest friend. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have known Harold as both a friend and a professor. His humanity far surpassed his accomplishments academically. We think of him often and will never forget him. I consider myself extremely fortunate to have known this truly great individual.

I remember Harold very fondly from my years at the Courant as a graduate student, and afterwards. He had a terrifically acerbic wit, and one would usually leave his office laughing uncontrollably, but sometimes nearly in tears. I think of him often.
