Linda Temple– John here, Harold and his family were wonderful neighbours when I was growing up. Everyone took things to him to fix. Margaret, his wife, was an historian and geneology researcher. She and her sister Anna Gorman mapped cemeteries in Montague in the 50s and 60s. Harold’s son Ron runs the shop today.
