Harold’s arms of pan­cre­atic can­cer. Old ri­val-turned­friend Lou moved in with Harold who en­coun­tered the ro­man­tic af­fec­tions of re­li­gious rev­erend Rosie Hoy­land (who was also hot for Lou), Lyn Scully’s man-eat­ing mother Valda Sheer­gold, and con­woman and gam­bling ad­dict Ruby Dwyer who burgled the Bishop home while Harold was re­cu­per­at­ing in hos­pi­tal af­ter do­nat­ing a kid­ney to save Lou’s life.

Af­ter cop­ing with his now teenaged and wild grand­daugh­ter Sky, the deaths of his son David, daugh­ter-in-law Lil­jana and grand­daugh­ter Serena emo­tion­ally dec­i­mated Harold, who blamed Paul Robin­son for their plane crash deaths and al­most stran­gled him! A brief fling with Janelle Tim­mins’ mother Loris fol­lowed be­fore Harold left town with new love Kate New­ton.

On a visit home, Harold was di­ag­nosed with prostate can­cer which went into re­mis­sion. Af­ter suf­fer­ing a heart attack, he and Lou went trav­el­ling but mys­tery sur­rounded Harold’s next visit un­til Toadie dis­cov­ered he was en­gaged to new love Carolyn Johnstone. Af­ter re­ceiv­ing per­mis­sion from Madge at her gravesite, Harold mar­ried Carolyn and they left town to begin a new life.

Harold (Ian Smith) re­ceives treat­ment for a heart attack, while Madge (be­low) loses her battle with can­cer.
