After school he proudly served his country in the United States Army. On March 14, 1948, Harold was united in marriage to Wilma Foster in Grand Meadow. Harold farmed for many years in the Millersburg and Roberds Lake areas. Upon retiring from farming, he and Wilma moved to a home in Warsaw and he worked as a mechanic with the Faribault Canning Co. for many years. Harold was proud of his beautiful flowers and vegetable gardens, generously sharing his produce. He enjoyed creating wooden lawn ornaments and sharing time with family and friends. After a knee injury and retirement, Harold became an avid walker on the Sakatah Trail near Warsaw; a routine that continued over 25 years. He loved to quote his orthopedic surgeon, "Never Stop Moving". As life slowed down and Pleasant View Estates became home, he continued to walk their hallways. Survivors include his wife, Wilma; children, Roger (and Marge) Smith of Royalton, Bonnie (and Jim) Lenway of Faribault and Pat (and Steve) Wright of Chester, VA; grandchildren, Christopher Smith, Sarah (and Jon) McGurran and Shannon Kardell; great-grandchildren, Ellie and Izzy McGurran and Avery and Alivia Anderson; brother, Gordon (and Sue) Smith of Dover, NH; sister, Shirley Smith of Quincy, IL; daughter in law, Sharon Smith of Medford and other relatives and friends.
