April 28, 1934 — December 22, 2021

A graveside service will be held at Oak Hill Cemetery in Lampasas, TX at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, December 26, 2021.

Harold grew up in Lampasas and began work for Rondie Welch at Lampasas Motor Company at the age of 16 as a service station attendant.  He continued working for Rondie Welch Equipment Sales for another 30 years.  He later joined the sales team at Hoffpauir Chevrolet where he worked until he retired at age 72.

He enjoyed spending time with his family and was a magnet for pets and grandkids!  He enjoyed camping, fishing, and boating and was well known for his woodworking skills.  One of his late-in-life endeavors was making crosses and giving them away to people who needed a blessing.  He gifted people in nursing homes, hospitals, and rehabilitation centers to name a few!
