Pam and Beck, Guys , words can not even begin to tell you how sorry Susie and I are. It was such a shock. Growing up, your dad was like my big brother, rather than my brother-in-law! He was always there for me . Without a doubt, your mom and Dad are dancing up a storm!!! Just remember, God is with you every step of the way as you go through this. Now is the time to lean on Him. Love you guys, Mike and Susie

My condolences to Harold's family. Harold and I worked together at the Purdue carpenter shop with a friend,Mr. Stan Memmer. We shared a Catholic background and enjoyed stories and jokes. Both Harold and Stanley had a special connection to Boilermaker basketball. Every time I met him after retirement he had a great story and smile.

Becky, Elmo, Pam and families, What a wonderful man your dad was! We will enjoy many memories of his "young at heart personality". From parties, bowling, enjoying his company in so many ways. Always dressed to the nines, and smelled like a million dollars!! He loved a good laugh!! A good man, a giving man - he did so much volunteer work along with Elmo and Tyler at the Red Cross for which we were forever grateful. May he Rest in Peace and find eternal love with your mom. We were all blessed to know him. Sending love and prayers to you all. Jim & Debbie

Dear Pam, Becky, Carol and Family, I'm so sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed hanging out with Uncle Harold when he would come with Carol to visit Clif and Lisa here in Holland. He was always so fun to spend time with. Truly one of the good guys for sure and certainly everything Carol and Clif said he was. I'm grateful I had the pleasure of meeting him and spending a little time with him. May God bring you peace and comfort during this sad and difficult time, Lynn Lefevre (Lisa's sister)

Dear Pam and Becky, so sorry for the loss of your father, he always had a smile on his face, and always talked about you girls and how proud he was of both of you. And he sure love all his grandkids! When I was younger I remember the parties he would have in the basement with you girls and friends, I got to go to some of those, because I was his godchild. I remember helping Aunt Pat with those parties along with you girls. He will be missed, but I know he is happy with the Lord, and Aunt Pat, and they both are looking down on all of you with much pride.❤️🙏
Josh Cox left a message on March 29, 2020:
I’ve always had respect for and enjoyed breakfast or front porch conversations with Harold while working for Robledo and Sons. He was always such a well spoken man and dressed with the times. I will always remember him watching us cut his yard from his front door while wearing nothing but his Nike basketball shorts and his gold necklace. Rest in peace and rock those Nikes in Heaven!

Our thoughts and prayers are with your family. Our memory of Harold is that he was a welcoming and warm man who was gracious to our family as an extension of his own, through the Windler family. Words cannot express our sorrow for the family at this tenuous time in American history. Our thanks to Harold for his service to our country as a serviceman and public servant. Godspeed Mr. Demerly. You are at peace with your loving wife by your side.

This really sucks! The way this all came about and the way it has to be handled. We need to be able to share the love in person and we can’t. It’s heartbreaking!
