He was united in marriage to Laurency Beer on February 20, 1950 in the Church of St. Henry in St. Henry, MN. Harold worked on farms most of his life, helping neighbors while in high school, driving milk trucks and working for Sederstrom's Farm Service for many years. During this time he also farmed, raising livestock and crops. Harold and his family lived in Morristown, Montgomery, and Grove City before moving to Litchfield. He was a member of the Church of St. Philip, the American Legion, the V.F.W. and has been a member of the Knights of Columbus for 73 years. He was also a 4-H Leader with the Acton Buzzers for 10 years. Harold enjoyed reading, winter fishing, growing roses, bowling and having coffee with his buddies. He would often feed the birds and animals in his neighborhood and enjoyed keeping current with farm and news reports. He had a mild mannered, happy-go-lucky, quiet personality and often helped Rennie with her downtown store.
