Harold Mosman, the youngest child of Ted and Katie Mosman, was born and raised on the family farm in Adams County, Iowa. He graduated Corning High School, class of 1946. Harold partnered with his parents to work the family farm. In 1950 Harold was called to serve in the US military during the Korean War. While on his tour of duty he served his country honorably as a radio operator. He was discharged in the fall of 1952. On April 5, 1953 Harold and Norma Jean Peckham were married. Into that union three sons were born, Harold Ted Jr., Timothy and Tracy.
Harold always sought a quiet and introspective life solidly grounded in the teachings of Jesus Christ. The community at Strand Lutheran Church was the cornerstone of his unwavering faith. Harold was an active member of the congregation his entire life. He was baptized at Strand, where he publicly confirmed his commitment to the church as a young man. Harold and Norma also raised their children in that community of faith.
Harold was an avid reader throughout his life. He read the newspaper every day always starting with the comics before turning to the world news. A common scene in the Mosman household in the 1960s had Harold seated at the kitchen table with his coffee snickering at the antics of Blondie and Dagwood or Al Capp. He read books on US history and politics with an occasional departure into fiction or a travelogue. He especially favored biographies of American presidents. But Harold would probably say that he was most profoundly affected in life by the beauty and majesty of Gods creation, specifically the landscape of the American west whose monuments and parks were key destinations for many family vacations.
Harold was preceded in death by his first son Harold Ted Jr. and by Teds daughter Angie.
Harold is survived by his wife Norma Jean; Teds wife Cindy, granddaughter Jenny and great-granddaughter Aaliyah of Berlin, Wisconsin. Tim and his partner Hank of Tombstone, Arizona and Tracy and his partner Hilary of Corning as well as numerous cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.
