Harold Henry Hinners, the son of Ernest and Bessie (Budd) Hinners, was born January 30, 1932 on a farm near Burnside, Iowa. In 1936, the family moved to their farm near Gilmore City. Harold attended country school and graduated from Humboldt High School in 1950. He enlisted into the United States Army and served in Korea during the Korean War. Following his honorable discharge, he returned home to farm with his parents. He met Anita Solbeck who was working in the bank and on August 6, 1961 the couple was united in marriage at the United Methodist Church in Humboldt. They made their home and farmed together on the family farm near Gilmore City until moving to their farm near Rutland in 1966.

Harold was a member of the Oak Hill Baptist Church. He loved his farming operations, which included farrowing and raising hogs and sheep. He was an avid Allis Chalmers fan and enjoyed playing dominos. He and Anita enjoyed traveling, taking their children on camping trips around the US and Canada, following their grandchildren’s activities, attending Bluegrass Festivals, visiting distant cousins in Norway and Denmark, and the last seven winters in Texas.
