Harold was the cousin of my father, Kevin Seeley, brother of Maralyn and son of Noel. My father died suddenly at 27 leaving a widow, Marion Seeley with 2 young daughters, myself and Gail. Harold had never met Marion but when he heard of Kevin's death he sent her money. She was always very touched that someone she had never met would be so thoughtful at such a difficult time in her life. We were pleased to finally meet Harold at Maralyn's 80th birthday some years ago and Mum was able to thank him personally. What is clear now is that Mum was only one of many people to be helped by Harold who was clearly a very special thoughtful and generous person. We offer his close family our sincere condolences
I met Harold when I attended Kew Baptist church. Harold was not in the best of health yet he was always in good spirit and smartly dressed in his blue blazer. I imagined that he must be a dashing man in his younger days - his photograph here is proof of that. Much must have been said of Harold's generosity and caring nature - in the little time I got to know him, he has made great impact in my life; I recall him telling enchanting stories of his business trip to North Korea where the communist regime was trying hard to convince investors to part with their money, funny stories with his cow business, etc. No matter how busy he might have been, he made time for people around him. To me, generosity of time weighs more than gold. Harold, I shall miss you. My sincere condolence to your lovely Ann and also to your family. Cheeling and Amanda Tan
I was sorry to hear of Harolds death in May 2017. I regret not being aware of this before now but would like to offer my condolence to his family. It is with sadness that I have not kept in contact. Harold was a great supporter of a number of activities I was involved with including the early exotic cattle days in NZ and Australia and NZ helicopter deer recovery. Harold was a very fair and genuine man whom for whom I have held the greatest respect.
