Harold’s life exemplified being a friend and he collected many long-lasting ones. “To have a friend is to be one!”
The Lord gifted our brother with a talent to blend his voice with us girls, whistling the oldies, self taught harmonica, clarinet, and some guitar over the years. He also had exceptional hand-eye coordination. Whether it be pitching, hitting, or catching a ball, or pole vaulting at track and field for country school meets. His home-made sling-shot picked off many furry vermin or maybe on big-game hunting trips. He enjoyed pitching horseshoes, shooting pool, golfing, curling or rattlesnake at the tourney at Family Reunions. Harold was an avid crib player and championed at Military Whist and many of the above at one time or other. Harold was a true talent with any kind of motor, he was the one to call on for that gas motor on the washing machine or the water pump, he also overhauled machinery for many a farmer he was a hired man for. He was always willing and happy to be asked for the job. Harold drove gas truck for Co-op, delivering to the farmers in local areas. His manager took note of his abilities and sent him off to study mechanics at which he excelled - making himself and our family proud. Harold worked for some garages here at home and later obtained his diesel ticket with Nowsco, when he made the move to Medicine Hat. Harold later retired to Burdett after working some 40 years at the trade he loved, followed finally by a move to Bow Island. We as his sisters have truly been blessed to have had him as a brother. A kind, gentle and patient spirit with a dry sense of humour and that certain little grin of approval. He will be sadly missed by our hundred plus relatives at our next Simpson Family Reunion and by all the folks who he befriended. God’s Blessings on each of you, “His friends!”
