Obituary of Harold C. Golding

Harold C. (Packey) Golding Our dear friend Harold Charles (Packey) Golding was reunited with his dear wife Edna on August 17, 2020. We know Edna welcomed Packey Home with a hug, a kiss, and a strong drink - just like she did everyday when they were married. Packey was born in Atlantic City, New Jersey on September 12, 1923. An accomplished student and athlete, the nickname Packey was bestowed upon him during his stint as an amateur boxer.Packey answered Uncle Sam's call and proudly served our Country in the European Theater of Operations during the Second World War. Upon returning home from War, Packey obtained his Civil Engineering Degree from the City College of New York. Packey was honored to be a Fellow and lifetime member of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Of all of Packey's many accomplishments, Packey's greatest love was his dear Wife Edna. They were blissfully married for 59 years. Packey cherished every Moment they shared. Packey always reminded us "While Edna was not my whole life, she made my life whole." Packey will be greatly missed by his extended Family and Friends, especially his Swisshelm Park neighbors who loved him like a Brother. Packey was predeceased by his dear wife Edna, his mother Bess, his father Barnett Mark, and his sister Grace Darling Griffin. Per Packey's request, a private Memorial Service will take place at the Miller Cemetery in Valley Point, West Virginia. Arrangements entrusted to the Thomas L. Nied Funeral Home, Inc., 7441 Washington Street Swissvale, PA 15218. In lieu of donations, Packey requested that his friends and Family please lift a glass in his honor and then go do a Mitzvah. Packey, you will be greatly missed. www.niedfuneralhome.com
