Harold was a dear friend to us and a colleague in ministry. Over our years of knowing him we both admired his dedication and can-do spirit as he pushed for the modern addition to St. Philip's as a way of making the church more welcoming and available for groups to use as a meeting space. He was a dear friend who kept in touch. He will be missed.
