Looking for info on an old friend.   I know with the minimal amount of info I have,  this is a needle in a haystack.

First name,  Harold.   Don't know his last name.

From Pennsylvania,  don't know more,  other than his lifelong career was a teacher.

He retired to Ft Myers, FL  and lived (at least for a time)  at shady acres RV Park,  19370 South Tamiami Trail.   He lived in an Allegro motor home,  iirc. 

He operated a Swan 350 or possibly a 500 almost all the time.   However,  he also had a Collins (I can't remember the model)  that he prized....

He'd also speak of his Harvey Wells mobile he operated in the 50s or 60s.

I met him in the late eighties to early nineties.   I met him at the aforementioned rv Park.   He mentored me and was instrumental in me getting my ticket later.

If it helps to jog anyone's memory,  both he and his wife where black.   I use past tense because I assume they are both sk now,  we are talking 20 plus years ago....   25 maybe...

Thanks,  in advance.   Again,  I know it's a longshot,  but just maybe someone can piece it together.   Collins aren't the most popular radios,  maybe someone remembers?

Indeed.  Also shows he was born in 1924, and if that's true, he'd be 92 years old this year.
