Harold worked as a custodian at Washington Elementary School and Sault High School. During his many years of service with the Sault Area Public Schools he enjoyed being able to participate in the journeys of many young people’s lives often acting as a mentor. Harold acquired and cared for a wide menagerie of animals throughout his life from fish to birds to lizards and every imaginable creature in between. His door was always open to another addition to the zoo. Harold also enjoyed spending time outdoors whether it was at the campground or on a boat with friends.
