Send Condolence

Dear Joan/Family: We are very sad to hear about Harold. We had a pleasure of knowing Harold for a long time at Westinghouse. He indeed was an expert in thermal hydraulics and statistical analysis. I always sought out his help whenever we had to solve a tough engineering/statistical analysis problem. He was a true scientist, always very humble, helpful and knowledgeable. We will miss him.
