He liked motorcycles in his younger years and also liked fishing and boating on Lake Michigan. He was in the US Army. Harold had a heart transplant on 9-11-01.  He was doing fine until his kidneys quit in 2016 but he was making it work. His wife Trena was by his side for anything he needed. He is survied by a brother George Walworth. He had one daughter Karen and her husband Rick and two grandsons, who also live near them. A service will not be held until August of 2018 due to him being a heart transplant patient.
I got word from kb8elg today that something went afoul in the reservation with the American Legion Hall.  They appear to have the facility double booked and we are getting the boot.  There will be time for hurt feelings and resentment later, but for now we are planning on a venue change back to our original location, the Village of Delta Memorial Hall at 401 W Main St, Delta, OH 43515.  The date stays the same.  The timetable may move a bit.  We will need to be super creative with our table layout.
 
I will start updating everything I can think of online.  Please spread the word to the outlying clubs however you can.
