Harold F. Dannehold, 91, of Waterloo, IL, died August 6, 2017, in St. Louis, MO. He was born December 14, 1925, in Waterloo, IL.
He is survived by his children Terry Dannehold and Sandra Dannehold; sister Rosalie Baum; nieces; nephews; and cousins.
He was preceded in death by his wife Irene M. Dannehold; parents Leo & Rose (nee Kolmer) Dannehold; sisters Evelyn Janson, Kathleen L. Straub, & Alberta Hicks; brothers Warren H. Dannehold and Eugene C. Dannehold.
Harold was a member of SS Peter & Paul Church, Monroe County Farm Bureau, and a US Navy Veteran.
Harold was a proud lifelong farmer, seeing every innovation and hardship of farming since the Great Depression. He was proud of his naval service. He trained to invade Japan and later served on the Battleship Missouri. He liked auctions and adding to his collection of tools and equipment. Harold particularly loved his TD-18 and earthmoving equipment. He was dedicated to his farm and family. Groundhogs rest easier now that he is not on the farm. Above all, he became one half of the best, most hardworking farm partnership ever formed when he married Irene Heiken in 1952. After 7 years apart, they are together again, enjoying the rest they earned many times over.
