To the Harold Raines family, My condolences to you with the loss of Harold. I returned from Thanksgiving holiday yesterday and was saddened to see his obituary in the Journal Tribune. I worked with Harold for many years at Goodyear and later Veyance on projects involving his splicing and belt repair capabilities and always found him to be friendly, capable, technically competent and very reliable. I particularly remember him collecting defect samples from production and returned used belts and preparing them with a full description. It was so impressive that I would use them (with his permission) from time to time with customer presentations and during plant tours with certain customers as applicable. Harold was a very good worker and I was pleased to have worked with such a good man. May God grant you peace and good memories! David Gallagher Chief Engineer Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co.
