Harold with Jonah


Harold with Jonah

Harold was born in San Francisco and has lived there all his life. He lives in the home that he and his late wife Sally bought more than fifty years ago. At the age of 85, he is retired after a career working in the manufacturing and shipping industry – including more than twenty years with the Bethlehem Steel Corporation at the San Francisco shipyard. Harold enjoys hunting, fishing, painting, spending time with his son, and watching movies.

Jonah is a third year undergraduate student at the University of San Francisco. She is currently working toward a degree in English with a concentration in writing, and a minor in Communication Studies. In addition to her studies, she works for the University’s Environmental Safety Office as part of their Neighborhood Clean-Up Crew. In her free time, Jonah enjoys running in Golden Gate Park, listening to music, shopping for books, exploring the city, and trying new restaurants.
