Per Harold’s request, no services will be held. In lieu of flowers, Harold requested for everyone to please spend extra time with family in this season. The family would like to thank Four Seasons Hospice, especially Roxy and Elizabeth House of Hendersonville for all their care and support during this time. In true Harold fashion, this has been KI4TVK over and out, seventy-three.
