Harold was an Independent Concessionaire and Farmer. He enjoyed traveling and made friends everywhere his travels took him. He was a Member of Antioch Missionary Baptist Church in Hughes Springs. After being a truck driver for many years, he met and married his love, Judy Faye and made his home in Pittsburgh where he enjoyed raising cattle and raised a little hell.

Three brothers and sister-in-law’s Royce and Dana Jones and Horace and Linda Jones of Hughes Springs and Jerry Jones of Atlanta.

He leaves behind, two special friends, Carolyn Smith and Luther Westmoreland, a Nephew who he loved as his own, Jeremy Bullard and a passel of nieces and nephews who will for forever cherish the memories of their “Uncle Hammer.”
His greatest joy came from being surrounded by his family and friends and if that time was spent fishing or hunting that was even better. He told a story like none other, and even if it wasn’t true, he had the ability to convinced you that it was. His personality was bigger than this life and if you had the pleasure of knowing him, you will never forget him.
