Harold Christian Iverson, age 99 of Woodville, died Sunday, January 26, 2014 at the Parkview Community Campus in Woodville. Harold was born on March 29, 1914 in Woodville; the son of John and Mathea (Olson) Iverson. He was raised on a farm south of Woodville where he attended school. As a young man, he began working for his brother Walt at Iverson Lumber. His love of woodworking started there. He enlisted in the armed forces where he proudly served in the United States Army during World War II. His service in the military was special to him and would later join the Woodville American Legion Post 301. He would be married to the former Betty Schoenhoff on December 31, 1959. She would precede him in death. He worked several years for Langer Construction in the Twin Cities as a foreman and finish carpenter. On December 16, 1992 he was united in marriage to Gladys C. Olson.
Although Harold never had any children of his own, he treated his nephews and nieces as if they were his own. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved all sorts of hunting, especially deer, fox, and pheasant. He took pleasure in wintering down south with Gladys and golfing at his favorite course. He also was able to boast he nailed a hole in one! They enjoyed dancing with friends. Gladys even got him to line dance in Texas. Although retired, he enjoyed tinkering in his woodshop and giving away crafts, such as birdhouses.
Harold is survived by his wife Gladys; her extended family; and many nieces and nephews whom he cherished. He is preceded in death by his parents; his first wife Betty; and nine siblings.
