I worked with Harold at the Wards, Amtran bus plant and always respected him and his ability to repair just about anything. Loved his sense of humor and I know he will be missed. Rest in peace.
I knew Harold even before he started work at Ward Body Works (later Ward School Bus Mfg. & American Transportation or â€œAmTranâ€.The entire time he always displayed a great work ethic & was always very dependable in both his work & attendance. He got alone well with all his coworkers. Heâ€™ll be missed by many! RIP Harold!!
Harold was a heck of a guy I talked to him about eight or nine months ago he said his head was hurt but he still had his feet we both laughed. I know he will be truly missed.
Carlene, I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet daddy. Please know you are in my prayers. I bet running them dogs in Heaven is much sweeter.
We are sorry for your loss
