Harold enjoyed taking his boat out on the lake and going fishing, gardening, sitting on the deck drinking coffee, loved watching westerns, going to flea markets, cooking and just taking a ride in the country to nowhere in particular. He loved going to church when he was able. He was an advocate for Native Americans. More than anything in the world he loved his grandson Levi Mason. He was “Pop-Pop’s” best buddy, playmate and the apple of his eye. Harold looked forward to spending time his best buddy who always put a smile on his face.
Harold is preceded in death by his parents Lawrence Dewitt Sr. & Betty Doris Marshall Peterson, brother Lawrence Dewitt Jr., half-sister Brenda Marie Peterson, mother-in-law Frankie Hester, and his granddaughter Everly Margaret Rose.
