    Harold was born April 21, 1905, at Gate, Oklahoma, to Cornelius

country in Oklahoma. On May 20, 1925, he was married toStella Hanzl. They continued to farm in Oklahoma until 1935, when they moved to Idaho. They settled on a farm in the Fargo Community southwest of Wilder, Idaho, and continued farming until their retirement.
    Due to increasing health concerns, they moved to the Autumn Winds assisted living facility in Caldwell, Idaho, in 1998.
    Harold was a man who loved and enjoyed life. He was always up-beat and looked forward to having family and friends stop by for a visit. He and Stella were good travelers and enjoyed several trips they were privileged to take.

and a helping hand when needed. When he was a young man, he professed his faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. His life was an example of how a Christian is suppose to live. He was a role model to his family, as well as to all who knew him. Every grandchild, as well as many others, looked up to him with love and pride. His cheerful attitude and strength of character will continue to be reflected in his posterity for many years to come.
