Sowers On Sunday February 21, 2021 Harold Paul Sowers loving husband of Pauline, father of 3 and stepfather of 4, passed away at the age of 87. Harold was born on July 24, 1933 in Brookville, PA to Charles and Jenny Burdelle Sowers. He attended Brookville High school, was President of his senior class, active in multiple choirs and played basketball. He enlisted, became a Sergeant in the U.S. Army, decoded Morse code as a Cryptographer during the Korean War and was stationed in Hawaii after the war. He worked as a Chemical Engineer and held the Production Supervisor position for General Tire (GenCorp) for over 40 years. Harold had a passion for travelling especially on cruises. He enjoyed dancing, boating, camping, physical and mental puzzles, and playing Aggravation. He loved to putter around his yard and his gardens were admired by the entire neighborhood. He loved participating and watching sports especially McKinley football and basketball games, and was a member of the McKinley Booster and Band Booster clubs. He loved his Bulldogs, Buckeyes, Cavaliers and more recently the Browns. He was quick with a smile, a laugh, or a funny story to share and had many close friends through his involvement in several organizations.
