He cherished the time he spent with his wife, children and grandchildren. Harold enjoyed bowling, dartball, playing skat at Johnsonville and sheepshead at family gatherings.

He was a lifetime member of St. Luke Lutheran Church, where he held many offices including president of the church council.

Harold was also an avid Packers fan.
