Harold was preceded in death by the love of his life and wife of 46 years Dorothy Lee Bohnert. Harold fathered 5 children with Betty Bohnert, until lovingly accepting 5 more into his life. Through his 10 kids, he was blessed with 21 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren. Harold was a man that found joy in the simple things in life such as bird-watching, yard work and keeping the Sabbath holy along with his friends and family. He impacted every person he met by displaying outstanding character and a kindness fueled by love and faith. Harold took much pride in his faith and was a devoted member of the Seventh day Adventist from birth until the day he passed. He showed his faith in all that he did and was a great example of what a Christian man should be. He will be greatly missed and forever appreciated for passing on his love, His wisdom and His Faith.
"Blessed be the man that trusted the Lord and who's hope the Lord is."
