It is with heartfelt sadness that that we acknowledge the passing of our dear friend and colleague Harold Hofman. As most of us know, Harold was a long time member of the COMTO Boston Chapter, past committee member of the National Scholars Program and most notably a longtime, faithful supporter and contributor to the Annual Garrett A. Morgan Youth Symposium. Each year Harold graciously donated over 100 backpacks and t-shirts for our youth that attended the Symposiums each summer. On behalf of the entire COMTO family, we extend our deepest sympathy to Harold who was a husband, father and brother. Harold's legacy will live on in the hearts of many youth. He will be sorely missed by the industry and certainly by those of us who knew him well.
A wake will be held on Monday, October 26, 2015 from 4:00pm - 8:00pm.

Harold was a truly wonderful, caring person. He and I had many thoughtful conversations about our life and the need to share our experiences with the youth. You will be greatly missed my brother. I thank God for the opportunity to have met and gotten to know a splendid individual such as you. Continue to spread your "Much Love" message down the streets of gold Harold. You are and always was an Angel from heaven.
Love Ken & Sharon Jones
