Harold was born on June 14, 1921 in Chelsea, Massachusetts to Rose and Morris Kendall. He was a staff sergeant during World War II serving as an airborne communication specialist.

After his time in the armed services, he worked with his father who owned a ladies coat manufacturing company in Boston.  He continued to work in the clothing business and more recently in industrial supplies.  He was proud to be the first honorary life member of the Marco Island Police Foundation and was an active member in the community.  Always a people person, Harold was loved and respected throughout his lifetime.  His hobbies were golf, fishing and he loved to ride horses in his early days.

He was a loving son, husband, father, grandfather and uncle and will be deeply missed. May his memory be a blessing.

The family requests donations be made to the Jewish Congregation of Marco Island and/or the Marco Island Police Foundation to honor his memory.
