Harold G. Erickson
My name is Harold Erickson. My parents were Orian & Ollillian Erickson who were farmers in the Jewell, Iowa area. They had five children: Elston, Arling, Robert, Opal, & Harold. I graduated from Ellsworth High School and was in the PEP Band. I went into farming and later met and married Diane Wold from Dubuque, Iowa. Together we have three children: Stacy, Corey, and Eric. We were married for 13 years when she passed away in 1977. Together we have 5-grandchildren and one great-grandson. We farmed. I took care of the farm land for a farmer in Ionia, Missouri, ‒ rent free. I lived in the farmhouse, keeping the grass mowed, and kept the place in good condition. I have been farming for over 55+ years. Then recently, the farmer sold the farm land, where I was living/residing, to another owner. So, I cleared out and moved in with my son, Stacy , who lives in Bellevue, Iowa. I recently moved into the Mill Valley Care Center. I love my family and farming. I enjoy my crossword puzzles and reading my Bible.
