GLENFIELD, N.Y.  —  Harold Albin Tiffany, 82, (affectionately known as H.A.T.) from Old Glendale, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, Oct. 25, due to a short illness with his loving family at his side at Upstate Medical University Hospital, Syracuse.

Born June 28, 1930, a son of the late Lloyd E. and Ruth Scrivens Tiffany in Glenfield, he graduated in 1948 from General Martin High School.

Harold started his working life with his brother Donald Tiffany, where together they operated a small farm in the hamlet of Old Glendale. He then went to work at Salmon & Widmeyer, where he delivered fuel to families throughout Lewis County. He also worked as a mechanic for Widmeyer in their shop in Glenfield. Later in life, he worked at Gould Paper Mill in Lyons Falls and then Boise Cascade in Lowville, where he later retired.

On June 27, 1953, he was united in marriage with Elizabeth J. “Betty” Gaylord. Together, they raised four children. 

Harold had a devoted and great love for his three daughters, one son, seven grandchildren nine great-grandchildren and cherished any time that he was able to spend with each and every one. 

Harold also had a great passion for and owned several vintage cars, including a 1930 model T ford truck, that you may have seen driving on some of Lewis County highways.
