Dear Greenbaum Family – I was very saddened to hear of Harold’s passing. Losing a loved one, especially such a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, is so very hard. I only saw Mr. Greenbaum, as I called him until the end, a few times beginning when I was in college almost 40 years ago. (Carol and he furnished our first apartment gratis and the pieces were top shelf.) Our time together was usually celebratory – graduation, wedding, bris, b’nai mitzvah, the East Haven summer house, Giants football games. Good times all, during which we spoke a bit. His character was strong and clear; Mr. Greenbaum was bright, energized, serious and funny, a true family man and always well dressed. He was good people and a real mensch as his son, Jonathan, often said. Harold lived a long, impactful life and will be missed…by many. His legacy is impressive and his values and example will live on. With sincerest condolences, Brad Golden & Family

We only got to meet Harold once or twice, but we knew he was a fun and interesting man whom we wish we got to know longer and better.

Comfort and healing thoughts to you and your family.

Carol, Gary ,Paul , Judy ,Jonathan and extended family on our shared tree.
It was such a pleasure knowing Harold.
Michelle and I had the great opportunity to ‘run into’ The Greenbaums when they moved to our neighborhood in East Rock.
We were always met with a warm smile and welcoming words and a familiarity that accompanies generations of connections with your loving family.
We are very sorry for your loss.
Please accept these virtual hugs until we are able to share the real thing.
With love and sorrow,
Peter , Michelle , Louise and Silas Newman

Dear Carole, Gary, Paul, Judy, Jonathan and family:

Dealing with such a loss is never easy. Harold may have stepped down from being the family Patriarch (a position he held so dear), but never forget you have friends who love you. And we pray that those memories he left behind will comfort you for years and years to come. From the days when Shelley rode in with Harold on the way to work at Wayside, to the days we joined him at Giants Stadium and family events, Harold will always hold a special place in out hearts. He was a good, generous man, and told a good joke too. We will truly miss him.

Harold and Carole are dear friends who always made me feel better when we were together. I think of them when I think of this poem:


There’s a comforting thought at the close of the day,
When I’m weary and lonely and sad,
That sort of grips hold of my crusty old heart
It gets in my soul and it drives out the blues,
And finally thrills through and through.
It is just a sweet memory that chants the refrain:
“I’m glad I touched shoulders with you!”

Did you know you were brave, did you know you were strong?
Did you know there was one leaning hard?
Did you know that I waited and listened and prayed,
And was cheered by your simplest word?
Did you know that I longed for that smile on your face?
For the sound of your voice ringing true?
Did you know I grew stronger and better because
I had merely touched shoulders with you?

I am glad that I live, that I battle and strive
For the place that I know I must fill;
I am thankful for sorrows; I’ll meet with a grin
What fortune may send, good or ill.
I may not have wealth; I may not be great,
But I know I shall always be true,
For I have in my life that courage you gave
When once I rubbed shoulder with you.
