Harold,s mind had amazing knowledge. Of many subjects. If he didnt know a particular
Subject he would research himself. Amongst many subjects he was keen to know how heat pumps worked he had picked up an old heat pump. I installed it wondered if it would function and it lasted quite sometime. I enjoyed our many conversations and visits just a couple weeks ago chatted with him regarding rvs and how we stayed friends for many years . I was saddened today to hear of his passing but happy he got to see his 100. May deepest sympathies to the family. RiP my friend.
