Harold was always so kind and treated me with respect. Even when I backed his van into a tree during a delivery. May he rest in eternal peace. My sincere condolences to his loving family.

I knew Mr. Johnson only in his later years, but I admired his soft-spoken manner and gentle spirit. He loved his family and served his country well, certainly earning the right to be named among America's "greatest generation." He will be sorely missed.
