I had met him through another friend of mine at the Strategicon Game Conventions but really didn't get to know him till later, when he was still in the hospital. I would go visit him there, get him something if he needed it to work on while he recovered. When he finally got to go home, I discovered he was living only 5 minutes away from me! And so we got together often, play games, painting miniatures, etc. Harold was one of those guys everyone would want to have in their game group/club as he was a gracious winner or loser. He was fun to play with or against and liked to just have a "fun" game.
My world is a little smaller without him and I will missed him dearly. Now who will I go with to "Mama's Sushi" during "Happy Hour"?
