On October 21, 1966, he was united in marriage to Mary Scrabeck. Harold was a lifelong farmer, retiring at the age of 83, he loved the farm and everything about it. He also enjoyed vacations with his family and old-time country music concerts with Mary. He was a lifelong member of Concordia Lutheran Church, serving in several capacities, including Sunday school treasurer, head usher and benevolence treasurer. His faith was very important to him.
