Fond memories of Harold. Despite his long life, I'm sad to see him gone.

If you go to the White Water Ontario facebook page you can see how Harold touched a lot of paddlers.
I first met him in the early 80's.
I use to run training camps and paddling clinics there.
A near perfect beginner stretch of forgiving WW.
Rapid media is doing an article about him and his contribution to paddling even though he was not a paddler.
Which may sound strange but a lot of paddlers got introduced to WW at Harold's camp site.
