Harold was a very humble man. His big brown eyes and warm smile could light up a room upon his entrance. Friendly and outgoing he made many friends wherever he traveled along the roads from Pubnico to Yarmouth and Barrington. He would stop at service stations, wharves, fish plants and Tim Hortons. Having been a lobster fisherman all his life he took great interest in the fishery. He would still be giving advice to his sons and grandsons even after being retired although the fishing industry had seen many changes over the last 20 years or so. His family was the love of his life and his life revolved around his 3 sons and his precious grandchildren whom he loved dearly. He always looked for the good in people and loved everyone, young and old. He will be sadly missed by family and friends alike. The family would like to thank his young buddies Darren Cunningham, Patrick Amiro, Gerard Stoddard and most and especially Randy Belliveau who all took him on outings and treated him like a king over the years. A special thank you goes out to the V.O.N., doctors Horton, Sehl, O’Brien and the nursing staff on the 4th floor of the Yarmouth Regional Hospital for the excellent care he was given during the past 3 1/2 weeks.Last but not least, we express our heartfelt gratitude to Dr. Brien Moses who with his great intellect and knowledge as an internist gave us an extra 10 years with Harold with the regiment of medication he placed him on. A great big thanks goes out to our family doctor practitioner, Dr. Peter Loveridge for the compassionate care he provided the past 46 years.
