    Harold, we we met playing ice hockey for the Willingboro Warriors at the age of 13/14 and were best friends by 16/17. We played hockey, chased girls, went to concerts and parties,
    and worked at McDonald’s together. My home life was dysfunctional and I looked to your family as the ideal, your Mom and Dad always treated me great no matter what was going on. You married and became a father and homeowner, and began your long career at RCA/Westinghouse/GE/Lockheed and we ended up working there together for a few years in the 80’s. Meanwhile, I was living an extended adolescence and going to night school. We saw less of each other through the years but I was always happy to see you, that big smile, sometimes with a pony tail, sometimes not. You always called me “Chief”, a nickname bestowed upon me by an ex-girlfriend. When you retired I was looking forward to you becoming a member of our small group of retirees, maybe even get you on a motorcycle with the rest of us. When I heard you had passed I was genuinely shocked, as if the wind had been knocked out of me. Gone way too young, but what a full life you had. I send you all my love and affection on your journey, may you rest in peace until we meet again in a better place.

    To Sharon and the boys: So very sorry to see this. Please know we are thinking of you guys. Remembering all the wonderful times we had together and the boys are sharing their own memories of Harold. LOL! Please know we love you and are thinking of you as you begin the next step of this difficult journey. Loving you! Lee, Jay, Matt and Kyle.

    I am shocked and saddened to hear of Harold’s passing. I had the privilege and honor of working with him throughout my thirty years at GE/Martin Marietta/LM. We were peers in the Quality organization. He was eager to share his experience and knowledge with the “new kid” when I first hired in. As we both moved forward with our careers, I enjoyed bumping into him in the hallways and could always count on him for counsel when I needed it. His attention to detail was commendable and he was always a team player. But he never compromised the quality of the product we delivered. He was focused on the sailors we serve. I will miss his smile and our easy conversations. Fair winds and following seas my friend.
