Harold Joseph Jaffe

August 30, 1938 ~ January 13, 2017

Born August 30, 1938 in Seattle to immigrant parents, Harold Jaffe graduated from Garfield High in 1956 and received his B.A. from UW in 1960. He married and started his family, settling in Tacoma for two years before moving to San Jose to open a consumer electronics store. He spent 40 years in that business, meeting and marrying his true partner, Kim.

Upon retirement he found his dream job working for the Seattle Mariners, where he was given the title Mayor of the Diamond Club. He also enjoyed working for the local Toyota dealership in Customer Service. What Harold did best was make friends. He and Kim cherished the bonds they forged in their business & retirement. Harold leaves behind his wife, Kim and children, Allan (Cynthia), Lisa, Chris, Kevin (Lori), & Nori (Mike), sister Helene (Dick), and with seven wonderful grandchildren, as well as nephews and grand-nieces.
