    Deepest sympathy to Harold’s family. Harold worked for my father (Laird Shingledecker) at Treadmill Tire when I was a girl. I have many memories of him retreading tires in the back shop. I remember his sense of humor and kindness.

  • Susan Dawson says:

    Eunice, I am so sorry to hear about Harold. I remember him from my being a young girl spending summers in Michigan, he was like a big teddy bear, so kind and thoughtful. I pray that God’s blessings will give you peace and comfort during the next weeks. Tell the family that I will be thinking of each one of you, it has been many years since I played with Butch and Debbie, I still feel a family connection. You each will be in my thoughts and prayers. Thank you for being such a good friend to my big sister all these years, (remember the surprise birthday party? 28 years ago?) You are a sweet lady.

    To Eunice and family, Sorry we can’t attend service for HAROLD. We remember him as a caring person who at the beginning of the Free Methodist Church he almost laid down his life helping. May God comfort all of you in your loss. The Shaners
