Harold worked at Parker Hannifin for many years and retired as a warehouse supervisor. He served in the National Guard until 1957. He loved to give you riddles to solve, tell jokes and stump you on trivia. He was also a bit of a practical joker, and no visit was complete without looking at old family pictures and videos. You could often find him “tinkering” in his garage or going to local estate sales. Besides his family, he loved his dog, Talia, and was a lover of all animals.

A Funeral Mass will be held Saturday,  August 17, 2024 at 10:00am at St. Anne’s Roman Catholic Church, 130 Boston Turnpike, Shrewsbury.

Arrangements are in the care of Rice Funeral Home, 300 Park Ave, Worcester.
