Harold was born June 26, 1938 in Eden Valley to Herb & Ermalinda (Neu) Meierhofer. He proudly served our country in the U.S Navy as a Boilerman on the USS Davis. Harold married Mildred Rausch on May 2, 1960 and Mildred passed away on May 21, 1968. He married Catherine Rausch on January 30, 1969 in St. Cloud. Harold operated his own dairy farm. He was a member of Assumption Catholic Church, Eden Valley American Legion Post #381, and Litchfield VFW Post #2818. Harold enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping with family, flying drones, collecting guitars and antique pocket watches, but his passion was farming. He was proud of his accomplishments and experiences in life, and always had a project to work on. Harold was full of shenanigans and tricks, and enjoyed a good joke.
