Harold---You will be greatly missed among the family of Optometry. You were such a powerful inspiration to all of us as to what makes a truly great Optometrist. Your passion and devotion to quality eyecare was evident to both your colleagues and patients. I remember your speaking to our ICO 2nd year class in 1974 regarding the practice of Optometry and particularly the specialty of contact lenses. It was so inspirational! Your legacy continues through your family and Davis EyeCare, but we will miss you.

I will remember Dr. Harold fondly. He was my eye doctor for many years, as he was for our whole extended Browar/Marcus family. He was such an innovator in his field and was so well-respected. My sympathies to the family. May his memory be a blessing.
