Memorial services will take place Thursday for Harold Haworth, who died Nov. 14, 2004, in Sacramento, Calif. He was 88.

Mr. Haworth, known by everyone as “Sir,” was born April 5, 1916. His mother and father came to America from England on the Queen Mary by way of New York, and settled a few years later in Newbedford, Mass.

He earned a bachelor’s degree in international relations from the University of Southern California. He was a World War II veteran and spent four years stationed in Australia in the Army Air Force.

After leaving the military, he worked for 22 years as a supervisor for the county of Los Angeles Department of Social Services. He was a family man and loved to take his family to many different places on camping trips. That is when they discovered the beauty of the emerald shore of Lake Tahoe and that, so many years ago, is when he decided it was the place for him when he retired.

He had been a resident of South Lake Tahoe for the past 18 years. His hobby was photography of the South Lake Tahoe Basin and Hope Valley. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

He is survived by his loving wife, Gloria; children, Marc, Nancy and Lori; grandchildren, Justin, David and Erin; and niece, Joan. He was predeceased by his father, Harold Sr.; his mother, Florence; and his brother, Eric.

Memorial services will begin at 4 p.m. Nov. 18 at McFarlane’s Mortuary, 887 Emerald Bay Road.

Red was his favorite color and everyone is requested to wear red in remembrance.
