Sincere condolences to Marybeth and all of Harold's family. I got to know Harold through his Red Cross volunteer work ( I was an employee there for 20 years)and then had some very enjoyable private conversations with him off and on. Some of those included talking about his POW experience so I was delighted when he told me he had gotten his memoirs written at last at the urging of family. A warm and caring man.

He was my Uncle on MaryBeth's side. I remember him fondly though most of my memories of him are from that of a young girl. Here are two memories that still resonate with me. I was either a Freshman or Sophmore in college, studying Earth Science as my major. He and MaryBeth came for a visit. Uncle Harold asked to see my scientific textbooks. I gave him my Chemistry, my Physics and my physical geology textbooks. He wanted reading material. I know my Chemistry textbook was fundamental to him but he enjoyed reading the books.
My husband and I had the wonderful opportunity of having a meal with them in Houston, Texas. The POW reunion, that he always attended, was in Houston that year. On that occasion, he was very talkative . My husband and I enjoyed his stories and insight.
He was a quiet and thoughtful man. He was a man who gave back, to his church, volunteering with the Red Cross, and probably with folks we don't even know about who needed help. I was fortunate to read his memoirs a few back. Thank goodness that has been recorded. What a wonderful accounting of what Uncle Harold went through. Events liked that probably shaped him into becoming the remarkable individual he was to become.
I am sorry for your loss, MaryBeth. The two of you led a remarkable life. Not only were the two of you faithful to your church and to its teachings, you also led by example. You practiced what you learned.

Your niece, Jennifer Ireland White

Really good friend ..... many good times as our families grew up......those family get-togethers created sweet memories. My husband, Frank, and Harold were both in the Air Corps during WWII and had much in common. We met them when MaryBeth and I were both in the Mother's Club at First United Methodist Church, Kalamazoo. We all became lasting friends throughout the years from 1950 . My deepest sympathies go out to you dear friend, MaryBeth, and your sweet sons ! Frank died in 2014 and will be with our Lord to meet Harold.
Thinking of all of you with much love.
