Retired Louisa County Circuit Judge Harold H. Purcell died July 14 at the age of 87.
Judge Purcell served in both the House of Delegates and the Senate before he went on the bench in 1966. In 1958, he patroned the bill that established Virginia’s uninsured motorist laws. When he retired from the bench in 1979, he joined his son Charles in the firm of Purcell & Purcell, where he was the senior partner until his death.
