Celebrating the life of Harold Wayne Mattison
Thank you for signing Harold Wayne Mattison's Guestbook
Mary and family...I had the chance to work with Hal when I was assigned with IBM in Atlanta in the middle 1980's. I have always treasured my friendship with Hal and we would have many laughs together about our IBM adventures. I am saddened to hear of his passing. I will miss his sense of humor and his laughter. My love and condolences to the Mattison family.

Mary, Ellen and I savor the memories of the good times we had with you and Hal.... the meals together and the trip to Knoxville for the Tennessee-Cal football game. I especially remember the golfing outings I had with Hal and since neither of us were very good golfers we had many laughs over some of our erratic shots. I won't mention some of the houses and yards we hit since some of those people might be reading this note. However, what I miss most was Hal's sense of humor, as he and I had many good laughs. He was a good man and a good friend and I will miss him very much.
