After 20 years of service, he retired and then drove the Bangor City Bus for several years. People may also remember Harold during his fire department years for washing windows, mowing lawns and painting homes as a side job. He was a member of the American Legion and was an avid sports fan. He loved his New York Giants football and Boston Red Sox baseball teams. Harold's family has many fond memories of summers spent at camp at Philips Lake.
