Harold was born on November 2, 1936 in Jackson, Mississippi to Monroe and Berenice McLaurin.
Shortly after high school Harold joined the US Air Force with whom he had the opportunity to travel all over the globe. He retired from the Air Force after 20 years in March of 1976. Harold's education included time spent at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri, Portland State University and finally Elliott Bookkeeping School where he received his Bookkeeper's Certificate.

In his retirement years, Harold took up stained glass cutting as well. His memberships included the Kiwanis Club and Trinity Lutheran Church in Portland.
Harold is survived by his brothers, Herman E. and William P. McLaurin; sisters, Catherine E. Perry and Ellen T. Cole; and a large extended family. He was preceded in death by his brother, Donald C. McLaurin, and his sister, Marion P. McLaurin.
