During his life time Harold had several occupations.  He farmed for many years, raising cattle & hogs, corn & soybeans until a serious heart attack, at the age of 52 took its toll. His next venture, which he very much enjoyed, was driving semi and seeing the countryside. He also served his community as a member of the Lions, Jaycees, Pork Producers, Good Shepherd           Church and he was especially proud of his 28 years as the township clerk.  He enjoyed activities such as dart ball, horseshoes, golfing, and fishing.

Harold and Karen were married May 6, 1958 celebrating 64 years of marriage just last week.  They made their home south of Wells where they farmed and raised their family.  Harold also enjoyed auctions and collecting things.  He had several collector cars and tractors.  You could often find Harold in the garage listening to old time music and tinkering with something. They moved into town in 2001 where they lived until last fall.  Harold and Karen enjoyed traveling with friends including a memorable trip to Germany to explore the Niebuhr heritage and visiting the original family farm.
