Harold enjoyed watching the University of Kentucky Wildcats and collecting UK memorabilia, and loved sharing time with his grandsons at regular season games, SEC, or NCAA tournaments. He was an avid hunter with his sidekick Jimmy Thompson. He especially enjoyed time on the lake fishing, and could tear up a dance floor doing the jitterbug. Floyd Cramer, Charlie Pride, and The Highwaymen were some of his favorite artists, but he also loved musicals. Campbellsville College's "The Sound of Music" and Louisville Actors Theater "Patsy Cline" were just two of his favorites. He often relaxed with a Louis LaMour novel or a John Wayne movie.

Survivors include a daughter, Cheryl Lynn Baldwin-Marr and husband H.W. of Cecilia; three grandchildren, Jason Baldwin, Clint Rodgers and wife Elizabeth and Brian Brandon Baldwin; four great-grandchildren; his former wife Barbara Thompson Baldwin of Campbellsville and a host of other relatives and friends.

Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by two sons, Robin Thomas Baldwin and Brian Gordon Baldwin; two brothers, Eugene Baldwin and Stanley Baldwin; a sister, Bonita Lyons; and a grandson, Christopher Robin "Buzz" Rogers.
