Mr. Harold was the type of person who never met a stranger. He carried a smile on his face and loved to talk and joke with people. He grew up in Sweetwater, TN and later moved into this area. He met and married, Mrs. Paulette. They were able to celebrate their 51st anniversary. He worked for Bunny Bread 28 years. He later worked several years for the Cannon County Convenience Center. He enjoyed going for walks outside when it was nice and watching classic westerns. When his kids were young he liked to take them fishing. He also liked listening to Hank Williams, Sr. and Elvis while on his treadmill. He was a member of the Dillon Street Baptist Church.
Mr. Harold loved to help people. He decided to become an organ donor many years ago. He had already donated a kidney to his brother and wanted to donate other organs when he passed away. His daughter was also an organ donor.
