I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I’ve know Harold for many years when I worked with the Water Court. He was always very nice and quite kind. He loved his family. He will be missed. Sincerely, Carol Redding

Our sincere sympathy to Harold's family. We spent many a happy time with Harold and Elaine in activities with the Cattlemen and
in supporting our children when they played in the accordion band and other events. Also had a special time when he came to have roast beef and play cards with us. He was a very special gentleman and will be greatly missed. Bob and Harriet DeFreece

Rusty and I fondly remember Harold from the time when I was interim pastor in Alamosa. He was always encouraging and willing to lend a hand. I enjoyed his pride in Sara as I officiated at her wedding. God be with all of you in the family as you miss him.

Such an amazing man, our family enjoyed visiting him and his family and still talk about our trips out there. We always had fun playing cards, getting tours of the ranch, learning the history of the area, farming information, etc. My husband has always had the utmost respect for him and his work ethics. He will missed by many.

Uncle Harold always had time for us children. I remember him calling us to go work in the fields or herd sheep. He would sing while we worked....🎵 Remember the Red River Valley🎼
was one of his favorites. Another memory....the adults all sitting in the house drinking coffee and Uncle Harold out on the lawn playing with us kids.....him taking the tractor to the pond by Grandma's, clearing the snow, starting a fire so we kids could ice skate all day. He never made us feel we were in the way. He was one of a kind.
