Harold Waldo Craft
December 31, 1935 - June 27, 2021
Harold Waldo Craft was born to Mary Smith and Junius Craft on December 31, 1935 in Detroit, Michigan. He transitioned from earth to his heavenly life on June 27, 2021, in his beloved home in Seattle, Washington with his daughter by his side.
Harold lived a wonderfully full and active life. He enjoyed traveling and appreciated beautiful things. He would often tell stories from remembering the end of World War II to life in Detroit during the Motown era. He would fill the room with laughter and being playful. The greatest joy and highlight in his life was the birth of his daughter, Sasha Craft, in February 1985. They were best friends.
Harold became a licensed real estate broker in Washington State in April 1972 and not long after he opened his own company, Craft Realty. He truly loved owning his own company, the many views that can be found in Seattle, being in his home, and spending time with his daughter.
Harold was preceded in death by his mother, Mary Smith, father, Junius Craft, his sister, Marilyn Miller, his uncles, Albert C. Smith and King George Smith, and other family members.
Harold leaves his family to honor and cherish his memory: his beloved daughter, Sasha Craft; his sister, Beverly Vaughn; his niece, Angela Williams; his great-nephew, Justin Williams; his great-niece, Jordan Shadd; his cousins Shawn Smith, Darrell Smith and Priscilla Smith; two great grand-nieces, Taylor and Kendall Williams, and a great grand-nephew, Kamdyn Bonnett; along with many others who appreciated his laughter and smile calling themselves the “Harold Hive”.
