Harold Dan Niemann, our beloved husband, father and grandfather went to be with the Lord on Thursday, June 3, 2021. He was born on April 30, 1938, in Orange Grove to Benhardt Julius Niemann and Anita Dorothea Havemann. He married Eva Joan Shepherd on December 12, 1970 at the Peace Lutheran Church in Woodsboro. They were blessed with a son Colton Wade and a daughter Dawn Renee.
He attended school in Bonnie View and later Woodsboro where he graduated. He attended Del Mar College, served in the National Guard and was a member of the Peace Lutheran Church and attended several Baptist and Methodist churches in the area over the years.
Harold was a very active farmer for 64 years. He was a past President of the Board of Directors of the Woodsboro Farmers Co-Op, served on the Board of Directors of the Bayside-Richardson Gin, represented Refugio County in many Republican Party events, and participated in several agricultural organizations.
Having lived all 83 years in the Woodsboro and Bonnie View area, Harold was considered to be the local historian by many. He treated everyone as part of his family and was very proud of all the young people he had helped along the way by sharing a little knowledge of the things he knew and learned.
He is survived by his wife of 50 years Joan; son, Colton (Barbara) Niemann of Woodsboro, daughter, Dawn (Brian) Killough of Castle Rock, Colorado; his grandchildren, Kagan Wade Killough, Eva Madeline Niemann and Kole Niemann Killough, his sister; Lillie Mae Horky of San Antonio, his brother; Charles Niemann of Woodsboro; and many cousins, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents.
