Survived by his loving children, John (Anna), Robert (Alicia), Kathy (Andres), Richard (Wendy), and Lise (Neil). Also his wonderful grandchildren, Alexander, Nicholas, Adam, Amanda, Alexi, Elka, Maggie, and Gabrielle.
Harold attended the University of Manitoba from 1944 to 1948, and started his career in the Pharmaceutical Industry in 1949, with A.H. Robins (now Pfizer/GSK). Subsequent to several promotions Harold became President of the Company in 1960, and retained that position until his retirement in 1990. During that time he also served as President of Perfumerie Caron and Miller-Morton Pet Care Company. As well, Harold served on the Boards of several Companies and Associations. He was also a member of Summerlea Golf and Country Club and the Royal St. Lawrence Yacht Club.
Harold is remembered as a caring and loving Father, as an inspirational Grandfather, and as a pillar of the Pharmaceutical Industry.

Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
I was very saddened to hear of U. Harold's passing. Over the past 10 years we spoke a few times a year, and always around Christmas when he received a photo of our growing/changing family. Our conversations were always filled with laughing and re-hashing old stories of the Roman(o) families. He will be missed, for sure, yet I know he lived a full and wonderful life. He was the last of that generation - for all of us. - Kent - Posted by: Kent Roman (Nephew) on: Jun 13, 2021
