Unless I'm mistaken, he's not buried. He was cremated and I'll leave the answer to where his cremains are for someone else.

He was cremated. I remember the day they had a ceremony in the spot where his statue is. Gary Morse did not attend, but watched from his office which was on the second floor above Cafe Ole. I always found that strange.

Harold's two sisters were still alive when he died and attended. I would guess his other son Richard was there.

I don't remember where they spread his ashes.

This was reported in The Daily Sun to the best of my memory.

Yep...that's it. Mr Google is your friend . . .

I was at a function on Saturday and a guy, who has lived here 18 years, told us that. I had to Google it too.

I'll look at that statue a little differently from now on.

Another question... before Spanish Springs Town Square was built, was there a vendor's night(s)? An if so, when and where was it held and what was it called?

Maybe not as strange as it sounds. Based on comments on this board in various threads Mr. Gary is a very polarizing figure to the TV folks. Maybe to keep Mr. Schwartz memorial from turning into something other than a memorial to Harold Schwartz, Gary Morse stood aside leaving the day for his father.

It is most likely that the family would have at some point had a private service or remembrance just for the family prior to the public memorial.
