Harold was born on the farm near Stony Plain, AB where he worked the stampede chutes during his teenage years. Harold worked heavy equipment, building and maintaining Alberta’s roads. In 1975 he realized the dream of ranching; moved to Drayton Valley where he bought a ranch, working it for 26 years. He retired to Sundre, AB where he began writing poetry about his life on the ranch and being in the mountains with friends.
Harold is blessed to have done what he loved to do - remembering friends of the past and enjoying new friendships along the way.
