Harold Ohde


Harold F. Ohde was born to George and Caroline (Albrecht) Ohde on April 8, 1929 on the family farm north of Atkinson.
Harold attended a country school and rode a horse into Atkinson to attend High School.  He played football, basketball, and was a Golden Glove Boxer.  There he gained the love of the Huskers.  He then went to Radio Technician Schooling in Omaha, NE and worked at the Merchant Biscuit Co.
On October 28, 1949 he married Evelyn G. Friedel in Stuart, NE at St. Boniface Catholic Church.  They moved to Omaha to start their married lives.  In 1951 they moved back to the farm where he farmed with his family.
In 1955 they moved to a farm south of Stuart.  He farmed and ranched, worked for Keating Implement driving truck and later trucked for Seger Grain & Trucking.  He loved raising his cattle and took pride in a good looking hay field.  He also never met a stranger. In 2013 they retired and moved into Atkinson.
