Harold was a great friend, supervisor and softball coach at CommScope. He hired me at CommScope
and I was there for almost 32 yrs. Harold was a very supportive man.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Josey family at this time. Harold Josey was a good soul. All my life, I will remember what HJ would say, "If you can't be on time, be early." And so many other sage admonitions. My heart goes out to Mrs. Betty Josey. May the Good Lord watch over you and keep you during this sorrowful time.

My deepest sympathy to the Josey Family. Not only was Harold a cousin (Lelia Josey Shoemaker was my Grandmother)but I also worked with him at Grenadier Knitwear. He was a kind & funny man. May he rest in peace....

I always remember Harold as a wonderful person. He always treated me so well. I had the pleasure of going to Key West with this family when I was in my teen years. I had the best time and one of my favorite memories was when we were all in the pool and Betty was floating and Harold kept trying to make her fall off. She yelled Harol, harol, harol, it was hillarious. I just want to say to the whole family that I have a imprint in my heart from your family. My thoughts are with you and I know that God will hold you in the palm of his hands. Love Carol Chamberlain Summerell
