I loved the kindness and love he showed toward my cousin Hazel. I also appreciated his generosity to small community projects via pie auctions that he so enjoyed.

From: Ann (Whitaker) Napier

It is with a heavy heart that I offer my condolences to HD's family & the entire Saco community.

I moved from Saco 50 years ago but whenever I was back to visit I always saw HD. He would come out to the ranch for coffee or I would see him at Fun Days. He & Hazel came to Southern California & stayed with my brother Tom for a few days so we got to visit there as well.

May you have comfort in knowing what he meant to everyone who knew him.

So sorry to hear of the passing of HD. He spent a few summers haying with Craig for us. He especially enjoyed taking our young son Austin in the truck with him to stack bales. His gruff demeanor melted like a snowman around a little boy that loved trucks and work as much as HD. A truly kind and special soul will be forever missed by our family.

From: Brian and Janice Berkner

Our deepest sympathy goes out to the family of H.D. He was a good friend and we always enjoyed visiting with him. So happy that we got to attend his 80th birthday party! He will be missed!
