Harold was a hard worker providing for his family throughout his life, and expressed his love through acts of kindness and service. He enjoyed the positions he held in the LDS church. He had a passion for animals, especially horses. He loved the rodeo, starting as a trick rider in his early years, and finding ways to be involved later in life. He enjoyed farming, good food, and people. He was a big tease.
