Harold was like an uncle to me somewhat. He was always there for my Dad and our tradition in the last few years was to visit he and Betty at Christmas when Dad was in town visiting me. Dad and he shared so many coming of age stories from Harriston and the three families (Brother Don’s included) spent their childhood summer vacations traipsing around Killbear. Harold was always calm and level headed when the Hutchinson’s had their commotions going on. He was a wonderful and considerate man. He was my father’s closest friend and we will miss him dearly.

I met Harold years ago, sadly at the funerals of other family members - my Aunt Jean McDonald (Guelph), my Great-Aunt Lila & my Great-Uncle Hursley Darroch. Hursley being the brother of my Grandmother, Ella (Darroch) - married to Roy J. McDonald. (My father, Kenneth P. McDonald passed in June '98). I do remember Harold's vibrant personality & so sorry to hear of his passing... Losing a loved one is never easy, my sincerest sympathies to all of you at this difficult time.
