I had the good fortune to be invited by Associated Bank of Neenah to attend a presentation by Harold in 1981 or so. The purpose of the presentation was to enable young business owners to benefit from Harold's insights into running a business. The presentation was structured around Harold's philosophy that every business should be viewed as a "customer-needs satisfaction system." I still remember Harold's exact phrasing, because it transformed my approach to customers and enabled my own little business to grow. After reaching the end of his presentation and taking questions for several minutes, Harold announced that he had another commitment and needed to leave. Since I had arrived a few minutes late, I had missed the bank's introduction of Harold and was sitting at the back of the seminar room. As Harold walked out, I brashly followed and called after him, "Harry, can I ask you one more quick question?" I didn't learn until later that Harold was never Harry, always Harold, but you wouldn't have known it from Harold's response. He not only stopped and turned around but set down his briefcase and gave me his full attention. Then he offered a number of ideas in response to my question and gave me the name of an executive at his company who might be able to offer further helpful information to me. A bystander would have thought that Harold had all the time in the world at that moment, and that I was a person of great importance to him rather than what I actually was, which was an awkward, untrained, and inexperienced young man, desperate to figure out how to make my struggling business thrive. The business philosophy that Harold articulated, and the dignity he accorded me that day were two of the greatest influences on my development as a business person. Forty years later, I remain grateful for Harold's contributions to my life, and I send my sincere condolences to his family and loved ones.

To all the Millers, I am so sorry for your loss. Your dad was an amazing man. I am honored to have spent time on his boat, to possess a stained glass crucifix of his, and to be life long friends with Mary! I always felt so welcomed by him (and Doris). I loved his laugh. And was scared of his lectures (after receiving a speeding ticket enroute to Menasha.) He sure served humbly in so many roles! He will live forever in your hearts and memories and will be with you in all that you do.
