Harold “Hal” Price Verity III, 61, passed away peacefully at his home on Friday, June 3, 2022 surrounded by his loving family. Hal was born on April 5, 1961 in Village of Greenport, New York, the only son of Peggy Author and Harold P. Verity, Jr. Hal spent most of his childhood in Port Orange, Fl, where he graduated from Spruce Creek High School. He then moved to Orlando where he dedicated over 30 years to the Orlando Sentinel working as an electronic paginator and where he enjoyed hunting, fishing and racing cars with his boys, Jeremy and Price.
Hal was a jack AND master of all trades, he could fix absolutely anything, and had the tools to do so. He took great pride in researching the problem, finding a solution and setting about repairing or resolving it. He was especially skilled and enjoyed working on cars; many a day and night were spent in the garage. Hal was patient, non-judgmental and loved his family fiercely and unconditionally. He was quick to help others expecting nothing in return. He was happiest at home watching movies, cooking – mashed potatoes and mac n cheese were fan favorites, and mostly spending time with his family, including their 3 pups.
Hal was preceded in death by his father, Harold P. Verity, Jr, his mother, Peggy Author, stepmother, Sophia Martin and daughter Candis Hammond. He is survived by his wife, Margaret Verity, sons Jeremy (Lauren) Verity, Price (Grayson) Verity, his grandchildren, as well as his sisters, Sue, Cheryl, Renee, Lisa, brother Chris, and their families.
At Hal’s request, there will be a private memorial. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to your favorite charity in Hal’s memory.
