When Harold moved back, he farmed with his brother, Richard on the Otto Dige place, Dad on the Homeplace, and then rented the Julius Degn farm, the old Whitaker place, and the Lester Moore farm for many years. Harold and Lila moved in to the Lodge for several years before entering Roosevelt Medical Center in 2012, due to failing health.
