As a young man, Harold went to work with his dad at the family’s sawmill, east of Bourbon. He always relished the outdoors and spent all of his years around timber and farming. Harold married Barbara Jean Bell on May 11, 1956 in Gainesville, TX. To this union four children were born: David, Michael, Donna, and Randy. Shortly after their marriage, Harold was drafted by the US Army and served his country during part of the Korean Conlict. He was honorably discharged in 1958.
