Harold Lee Larsen was born to Chris and Fern (Quartz) Larsen at Loup City, NE on October 5, 1928. He was welcomed by three older brothers, Glenn, Orrin and Richard and was later joined in the family of sons by brothers Boyd and James. Harold attended country schools in Nebraska. In 1941 the family moved to Westboro, Missouri where he attended Westboro school. In 1943 they moved to the Clearfield area.

Harold graduated from Clearfield High School in 1947. The following August he was united in marriage to Priscilla Aukland. To this union were horn two children, Randall Lee and Pamela Joyce.

The love of his life was his farming. He enjoyed this the most through the years he farmed with his father and brothers. He also enjoyed his years of crop adjusting with Farmers Mutual Insurance Company.

Harold was stricken with rheumatic fever in 1954. Although suffering from arthritis the remainder of his life, no one ever heard him complain.

He belonged to the Clearfield United Methodist Church and the Clearfield Lions Club.

He also leaves a large family of loving nieces and nephews. His friends were numbered by his acquaintances.

He was a quiet man who never had an enemy.
