Black, Harold Lee Harold Lee Black, was born in Dallas, TX, on June 5, 1936, and died unexpectedly on April 11, 2014 at his apartment at The Conservatory in Plano. Harold Lee grew up in Dallas, and attended Forest Ave. High School, and graduated from Hillcrest High School in 1953. He worked for Tribute Dress Co., and Larry's Shoes for many years. He was a very special man who loved life, and never met a stranger. He was always upbeat, happy, and so friendly and kind to everyone. He was like the Ambassador at every place he lived. He deeply loved his family, and was a caregiver for his older brother, Marvin for many years, as well as his mother. He loved to visit with people and ask about their families. His true passion was miniature golf. He played every day for a few years, weather permitting, at Mountasia Golf Course in Plano. He held the record for the lowest score, and there was an article, and his picture In the Dallas Morning News re his great feat. The owner sold out and he did not go anywhere else to play when they closed. He is preceded in death by his mother, Sarah Black, father, Sol Black, brother, Marvin Black, and his beloved Boston Terrier, Reggie. He is survived by his sister, Renee Borin, niece, Shanna Wolf (Jeff), nephews, Aaron and Baylin Borin, great niece, Czzari Tureaud Borin, great nephew, Elan Wolf, and his beloved and wonderful caregivers, Wendy Curtis and Terri Spears. Graveside services will be held on Thurs. April 17, at 1:30 at Sparkman Hillcrest, Temple Shalom Cemetery. Donations may be made to Congregation Nishmat Am, SPCA, Diabetes Assoc., or the organization of your choice. The funeral has been delayed due to the Passover holidays, and the family will not be sitting Shiva.
