Harold was a war veteran and also a firefighter for many years, and upon his retirement from the department, he became an honorary member.  He was known to many as the Pictou Fire Department’s Santa.  Harold is survived by his son, Joey; daughter-in-law, Sandra; his beloved granddaughter, Shelby; his chosen one, the loch broomer, Ceanna Swan; sister, Isabel Beck; several nieces, and nephews.  He was predeceased by his wife, Doris; brother, George; sisters, Amelia, Jean, and Theresa.  We want to thank the Northumberland Veterans Unit for the care they have shown to Harold.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Northumberland Veterans Unit or The Royal Canadian Legion, Pictou.  Visitation will be held 2-4 & 6-8 PM Wednesday in McLaren Funeral Home, Pictou.
