Harold grew up in the Old Ripley area of Bond County. He attended Pocahontas grade schools and graduated from Greenville High School. After high school he started working at Basler Electric with his mother. He then moved on to Olin Brass Mill, for forty years, as a lead heat treater. He retired to his log cabin where he enjoyed the outdoors, tinkering, his lawn mowers, wheeling and dealing, his blue 1996 Harley sportster, his dogs: Lu Belle, Holly Dolly, and Clyde. Spending time with his family and grandchildren was one of his greatest joys. He was a member of the Old Ripley Church of Christ. He turned his life over to his Lord, Jesus Christ, his Lord and Savior and read his bible daily.
He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters: Judith Kious and Diane Bare; and Brother James L. ‘Bud’ Hoffmann.
