Hal was such an amazing man to so many. growing up I spent a lot of time just listening and watching him. To me he was the ultimate dad and most caring husband. He taught me alot about how to be the person I am today... even if he didn't know it. Honor, Integrity, Love, Kindness and Passion for what and who your love. Thanks for teaching this to all of us. RIP Crotch!
(BTW, I REALLY thought that nickname meant something way more interesting! lol)

Hal was a true friend to many people both in business and casual , I remember him holding many records in track at High school and he never bragged about it . I remember purchasing several different vehicles from him at the Chevy place in Greene. He was always fare and honest and fun to deal with. I did not see him so much in recent years but when I did , he always had fun things to say. I don't think he ever went up with me in a Helicopter but we joked about it at different times. He will be missed by many. A wonderful person.

Harold encompassed all the good, strength, love and fun in life - to lose him makes the world a smaller place, but in time all the beautiful memories will open the space again, and we'll be able to smile and be happy that he was part of our lives.
