He was honorably discharged on January 31, 1947. He held a job as an auto worker at General Motors for 33 years. He spent much of his time serving Calvary Baptist Church and his community in Warwick, NY. Service for his church included being a Trustee, Deacon, sound technician, builder and bus driver. For many years he served his community as a Little League coach for multiple levels. His many years of service to his community aided in his receipt of “The Man of the Year” award from General Motors.

Harold was a loving husband for 71 years to Frances Elizabeth Matthews, who grew up with him in Greenburgh, NY. He was the adored father of Jacqueline, Vivian, Joe, Murry, John, Robert, Timothy and the many foster children they raised. He was the loving father-in-law of Heydi and her husband Dave.
