Harold M. Riale, Sr., age 66, a friend to many, passed away at his home in Perryville, MD, on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. Born July 23, 1951 in Havre de Grace, MD, he was the son of the late Stanley and Virginia Riale of Perryville, MD.

Throughout his life Harold loved serving his community and was a dedicated life member of The Community Fire Company of Perryville, MD, where he held the past offices of EMS Captain, Fire Police Captain, Board of Director and served on many committees. Harold loved being “Santa” for the children of the community and seeing them smile when they saw “Santa” arriving on the fire truck to hear their Christmas wishes.

In addition to serving as a volunteer at The Community Fire Company of Perryville, Harold was also a member of the Water Witch Fire Company and the Havre de Grace Ambulance Corps.

Harold’s other love in life was the game of baseball and he enjoyed being chief umpire for the Perryville Little League for many years.
