Farewell Grandpa! Your curiosity for life until the end inspired me and your laugher will forever ring in my ears. Every year at Easter i will think of the “tales” you would tell of the Easter Bunny living in you Ashland gardens so many years ago. I will miss you teasingly call me “Gee Anna”. ❤️

My Uncle Harold was, to me, a vivacious character who always took time to have fun with me. I greatly respect the life he lived, the service he provided to our country, and the husband and father he was to his family. My condolences on the loss of their patriarch to his entire family. Love, Gordon and Carie Geraci (Cincinnati, OH)
