Many Eastern Maine basketball fans may remember Harold Hoar. He made it a plan every year to watch every tournament game at the Bangor Auditorium for decades.Harold died this past weekend. He was from Island Falls and was such a fixture that he was made an honorary basketball official by the local board. He would show up in his sport coat and wander through the Auditorium and greet all he knew and introduce himself to those he didn’t know. He was “Harold” and he was Mr. Tournament.A funeral for Harold will be next saturday at 10:00am in Island Falls.
