Over the past years of putting together both history about Marx Toys and the Marx Conventions that we host each year at the Kruger Street Toy & Train Museum, we had gotten to know Harold rather well and considered him a good friend. He was a legend in toy design, a personable and likeable speaker, and a pleasant person to be around. I am sure that I speak for ALL of the people who have attended our past conventions and heard Harold speak when I say that he will be missed, and that his contributions to the Marx toys we all collect were priceless.
