David Harold Baldwin, 73, of Fletcher was promoted to Heaven on Friday, May 7, 2021. He was a lifelong native of Henderson county and son of the late Josephine Lewis Allen.
Harold graduated from West Henderson High School and then was drafted into the US Army to serve in the Vietnam War. He was a loyal employee to Bolts & Nuts in Biltmore for forty-two years. He attended Hoopers Creek Baptist Church. In Harold’s free time, he could be found fishing, camping, and gardening. Harold was a diehard Tarheel basketball fan; go Heels! He also enjoyed NASCAR racing.
Harold was a loving husband, father, papaw, father-in-law, neighbor, and friend. His family meant the world to him; Harold will be dearly missed by all.

In lieu of flowers, the family kindly suggests memorial contributions can be made in Harold’s honor to Four Seasons Compassion for Life-Elizabeth House.
