He was the grandfather of Darren Hake and his wife Bekah of York, Kendall Hake of New York City, Hannah Rosenberg of Houston, Texas and Hayden Rosenberg of South Dakota and great grandfather of Austin and Rylan Hake both of York along with his beloved dog, Pumpkin and numerous nieces and nephews.

Harold was a loving husband, father and grandfather who loved gardening and being outdoors. He was very particular with his lawn which he kept in immaculate condition. God looked upon his garden and saw an empty place. He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face. He put his arms around you, and lifted you to rest. God's garden must be beautiful, He always takes the best. Our precious Angel will be in our hearts forever.
