After graduation Mr. Harold enlisted in the United States Army proudly serving his country. After leaving the military career behind he found a passion working as a Mechanic, leading to the opening of his own business Hohenwald Auto & Diesel. Being a mechanic wasn’t all he could do. He was known by his family as a true Jack of All Trades. He was always willing to tackle any task at hand including working on old tractors.
In his spare time, he enjoyed being outside heading to the river or working in his garden. Once he settled down for the day, Harold would kick back and turn on his favorite old western movies and relax.
