Harold proudly served in the United States Air Force, and he was also a diesel mechanic and business owner. He built a beautiful home on the family farm.
After his retirement, Harold enjoyed raising cutting horses and working on his farm. Harold’s love of mechanics led him to have great passion for drag racing. Over the last several years, the family has spent many weekends at race tracks, and Harold made many incredible friends who became his racing family. Harold was a devoted son, husband, father, and grandfather, and he was a true friend to many. There was nothing more important to Harold than his family and friends.
