Harold was born to Leo and Ella (Johnson) Huber in South St. Paul, Minn., on June 25, 1930. He was a college art teacher in Milwaukee for 40 years and retired to Ottertail in 1992, where he devoted his time to writing, gardening and fishing.

His short stories have appeared in countless literary journals and anthologies across the country, and a collection of his tales, titled "South Beulah, Minnesota," was published by Stone House Press in May of 2000.

Harold is preceded in death by his parents, who were Perham residents in the 1970s, and his brother, Billy.

Surviving Harold are: niece, Janet Latus (John); nephew, Mark (Sue); almost-sister, Donna Culbertson (Robert); and many cousins - especially beloved of whom are Carole and Phil Tiedman, Diane and Mike Windey and Johann McCarthy.

Having dedicated the greater part of his adult life to students and study, Harold decided to donate his remains to a nearby medical college for research and education.
