Harold served his country in the United States National Guard and was a graduate of Saint Francis de Sales Boys School. He was a parishioner of Maria Immacolata Catholic Church.

Harold was a faithful Catholic who had a love for the Holy Family and his faith.

He was a devoted father, grandfather, friend, and lifelong lover of all sports. He lived every day to the fullest.

Harold was often heard saying, "Stay close to God and treat every day as a holiday and every meal as a feast."

Harold was an inspiration and brought joy to everyone he met.

In lieu of flowers, the family request donations to be made to Maria Immacolata Church and School and Vandebilt Catholic High School.

The Haydel family would like to thank Dr. Dicky Haydel and Dr. Rob Alexander. He was also blessed with four loving caregivers, Toshia Givens, Jennifer Brunet, Shelby Glynn, and Debbie Mitchell.
