Mr. Harold loved his country and was a veteran of the United States Navy.  He had lived in Tift County since 1959 when he was transferred to Tifton with the Georgia State Patrol where he retired in 1984.   After his retirement from the Georgia State Patrol he served as an agent with the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.  He was very proud of his law enforcement career.   

He loved his family dearly especially his two grandsons.  He was an outdoorsman who loved to hunt and fish with his family. 

He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Sheila and J. L. Bryant, and his two grandsons, Zach Greeson and Nick Greeson all of Tifton along with many cousins.
